Irregular Preterit Verbs

Many of the most common verbs in Spanish are irregular in the preterit tense. Fortunately, even the irregular verbs follow patterns.


Ser and ir l.jpg
Ser and Ir

Ser and ir, although they mean completely different things, are identical in the preterit tense. Context and the a that usually follows ir are the only ways to determine whether ser or ir is being used.

Miguel fue al banco. Miguel fue un alumno estupendo.

The a following fue indicates that it is a form of ir.

CONTEXT: Chances are, Miguel was never a bank. This suggests that fue is not a form of ser in this sentence.

The absence of a following fue indicates that it is a form of ser.

CONTEXT: It is feasible that Miguel was a stupendous student, which would support the possibility that fue is a form of ser in this sentence.
