learn the hacer conjugation in Spanish

How does the hacer conjugation work in Spanish?

In the present tense of hacer, the conjugation is not difficult: learning it is just a matter of practice! As you probably know, hacer is a very important irregular verb: it means “to do, to make” and we use it in many different ways, therefore it’s one of those verbs to get familiar with.

Differently from regular verbs, irregular verbs don’t follow a pattern, so the best thing to do is trying to memorise the conjugation and do as much practice as you can. Even though the endings are irregular, hacer is such an essential verb in your daily conversation that you will easily remember all the forms.

Let’s learn the present tense!

yo hago
él/ella/usted hace
nosotros hacemos
vosotros hacéis
ellos/ellas/ustedes hacen


Not too bad to remember, isn’t it? Now some practice is essential to learn the conjugation and start using this verb. Have a look at the following examples!
