01064 – Present Tense – Decir

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jul 2, 2012 in -IR, conjugation, grammar, irregular yo form, present, stem-changers, verbs, year 1

Here’s another lesson about a verb that changes a little strangely in the present tense.  It’s a common verb though so we should probably go over it.  The verb is decir and it means “to say” or “to tell.”

Enjoy!
