¡Hola! Thanks for joining us. This time, you will have the chance to practice the verb IR in Spanish. It is a very important irregular verb to talk about things such as actions that we often do and future plans under the structure “IR + A + Infinitive”, which would be the equivalent to “going to” in English. We hope you get the best out of this PDF worksheet.
Students could work individually or in pairs to solve the exercises on this worksheet.
Give students a copy of the worksheet. This worksheet has three exercises. For the first exercise, students must complete the chart with the proper conjugations of the verb IR in Spanish for each subject pronoun. In the second one, they should take a look at the images above each of the sentences and then write the correct form of the verb IR in the blanks for all 12 sentences. Finally, students should complete the dialogue using the same verb in the present tense too in a way that it makes sense and it is grammatically correct.
