The verb ir =
“to go”
To say where you
are going and to talk
about the future
El verbo “ir” en el tiempo
presente
(This is an irregular verb.)
yo voy
tú vas
usted va

ellos van
ellas van
Ejemplos:
• Yo voy a la clase de Español mañana.
• Él va a la fiesta esta noche.
• Mis amigos y yo vamos al partido de fútbol.
• Juanito y Julia van a un restaurante peruano.
Note:
The verb ir is usually followed by a.
When a is placed before the article el, the two
words form the contraction al.
Ejemplos:
Voy al parque. = (I’m going to the park.)
Voy a la biblioteca. = (I’m going to the library.)
Use adónde to mean “where” when there
is a verb indicating motion, like ir.
Ejemplo:
¿Adónde vas? = (Where are you going?)
Voy a la clase. = (I’m going to the
class.)
Note: ¿Adónde…? is similar to
“To where …?”
Using ir to talk about the future
If you want to say you are going to do
something, use this construction:
ir + a + infinitive
You must conjugate IR!!!!

rosas. = (I’m going to buy 50 pink
iPods.)
