Irregular Verbs - "Go Verbs" tener, decir, hacer, poner, salir, traer

This exercise practices the irregular verbs that have a "-go" in the "yo" form. We call them "Go Verbs."

Irregular verbs in Spanish don't follow the same pattern as regular verbs, but you still need to conjugate them. "Tener" is an infinitive meaning "to have." To put "tener" into a sentence, you'll need to conjugate it. Conjugating is when you change the ending of the verb to match the subject it goes with. So, if I want to say "I have" I can't just say "Yo tener." I have to memorize the correct endings, and put on the correct ending for the "yo" form. I end up with "Yo tengo."

Note: In Spanish, saying the pronouns (yo, tú, él, nosotros, etc.) is optional. The verb endings are so different that they often tell us what the subject is. Don't be surprised to see a sentence like "Hablo español" (I speak Spanish) instead of "Yo hablo español."
