Grammar - IR Verbs (Group 1)

This Spanish Easy Review grammar quiz will challenge you on IR verbs. As you have learned, Spanish has three different types of base verbs. Those three types are ar, er and ir. This means that the verb ends in either ar, er or ir. A base verb is a verb that has the word 'to' before it such as 'to see', 'to drive' or 'to play'. These verbs are not showing any action but let you know what kind of an action will take place.
