Algunos Verbos Iregulares - Some Irregular Verbs

While irregular verbs may not follow the normal patterns we find in the present, preterite past , imperfect past, etc. - that doesn't mean there are no patterns at all! In fact once you begin using more and more Spanish verbs, you'll find that even many irregular verbs do follow some patterns like the ones you'll find below. Notice that the verbs below are irregular for every person except "nosotros".
