01-028 Present Tense – IR (part 2) ¿Adónde…?

Posted by Señor Jordan on Nov 18, 2008 in conjugation, grammar, irregular, present, verbs, year 1 |

In this video lesson, we’ll be continuing with the verb ir in the present tense.  Ir is an irregular verb.  This means that although ‘to go’ is ir, the different forms do not look even close to ‘ir‘.  Those forms are as follows…

yo voy vasél/ella/usted vanosotros/nosotras vamosellos/ellas/ustedes van.

In this video, we’ll be learning how to ask and answering questions with the word: ¿Adónde? (Where (to)?)  Enjoy!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about this lesson, let me know!

Great question.

Voy = I am going / I go (to a destination)
Me voy = I am leaving / I leave.

Hola~~~ I’m just watching your video. and reviewing now.
By the way,, ‘library’ is ‘biblioteca’ , isn’t it..? However, at 3:44 , It might be spelling mistake. Check please~

Hasta luego~~

hola senor jordan!! I’m an avid fan of yours…you are so amazing..thanks a lot for the videos…but I have a question,
What if I wanted to ask someone where he/she IS going and I wanted to emphasize the “usted” form… Should I say ” Donde va usted?” or Donde usted va? thanks!! =)

¿Adónde va (usted)? (we usually use ‘a’ with donde for this because of the destination)

One of your examples asked … Using va …. You answered (yo) voy …. Correction needed

Love your videos!

I am wondering about time. I am studying with a program which taught that you only use -a las- when talking about 1:00 –(a las uno). All other hours it is -son las ( son las tres, etc..)

Are both ways correct? Thanks a ton!

I would have loved to have a spanish teacher like you!

Good videos

What do you mean when you said tu/usted And for an answer yo

Isaiah vera,
He means when someone (in spanish) tells you: “where are you (tu/usteadas) going, say I (yo) am going instead of you are going.
