Spanish Irregular Present Tense Verbs
Irregular verbs can fall into two categories in the present indicative: irregular in the yo form, or irregular in all forms.
Irregular in the Yo Form
As in every language there will be verbs that do not seem to follow any of the rules. Irregular verbs are verbs that violate conjugation rules for one or more persons and do not fall into any of the stem-changing or spelling-changing categories. And unfortunately, these are usually the most useful and regularly used words in the language. The following words are irregular only in the yo form. They are regular in all other conjugations.
Irregular Yo Conjugations

|Subject||ser (to be)||estar (to be)||ir (to go)||haber (to have (done))|
|usted, él, ella|
