-go Verbs
There is a small but very important
group of verbs that we call the “-go”
verbs. These verbs are:
Hacer: to make/do (not on worksheet so add it)
Poner: to put
Salir: to leave
Tener: to have (not on worksheet so add it)
Traer: to bring
Venir: to come
Dar: to give
Why are these grouped together??
Good question!
Remember the verb
tener. Do you
remember why the yo
form was special?
Correcto!
yo tengo: the yo form
ends in –go.
So what do you think the
yo form of venir is?
On the “go”
yo vengo
How about the yo forms
for:
Salir
Poner
“Go” for it!
yo salgo
yo pongo
Wait! There’s more!
There are a few quirks:
hacer > yo hago
traer > yo traigo
decir > yo digo
What about “saber”?
Good question! It’s very
irregular:
saber > yo sé
Notice the accent on sé
Let’s look at those “yo” forms again…
Decir: yo digo
Hacer: yo hago
Poner: yo pongo
Saber: yo sé (not on worksheet so
add it)
Salir: yo salgo
Tener: yo tengo
Traer: yo traigo
Venir: yo vengo
What about those other forms??
They are regular!!
For example: hacer
yo hago (irregular; not normal)
tú haces (normal)
él hace (normal)
nosotros hacemos (normal)
ellos hacen (normal)
Venir
VENIR changes its stem, just
like TENER:
E becomes IE
yo vengo
tú vienes
él,ella Ud. viene
nosotros venimos
ellos, ellas, Uds. vienen
Let’s take a look!
> saber
yo ______ (irregular; NOT normal)
tú ______ (normal)
él ______ (normal)
nosotros _____ (normal)
ellos ______ (normal)
Saber
yo sé
tú sabes
él sabe
nosotros sabemos
ellos saben
Saber is included in this
group because only the “yo”
form is irregular in the
present.
Here’s a second helping!
> decir
yo ______
tú ______
él ______
nosotros _____
ellos _____
Conocer
Yo digo (irregular, NOT normal)
Tú dices
Él dice

Ellos dicen
One more for the road…
> salir

tú ______
él ______

Una Mezcla (a mixture)
Cuando yo no _______ (tener)
quehaceres, yo _______ (venir)
al baile de Prince Charming.
Mi Fairy god mother , _______
(hacer) un vestido nuevo para
mi.
Una Mezcla
Cuando yo no TENGO
(tener) quehaceres, yo
VENGO (venir) al baile
de Prince Charming.
Mi Fairy god mother ,
HACE (hacer) un vestido
nuevo para mi.
In conclusion…
The –go verbs have an irregular
yo form: digo, hago, pongo, salgo,
sé, tengo, traigo vengo
The other forms are regular
according to their conjugations.
For example, traigo, traes, trae,

verbs and also change in the tú,
él, and ellos forms: tienes, tiene,
