Grammar - IR Verbs (Group 2)

This Spanish Easy Review grammar quiz takes a further look at adding to your list of IR verbs. By now your Spanish verb vocabulary list should be getting to a point where you will be able to begin to start to create many different sentences.

You should also understand that Spanish has three different types of verbs that include ar verbs, er verb and ir verbs. When you being to conjugate verbs, you will see that the verb endings will affect the way the verbs change.

But that understanding will occur in the series of quizzes on conjugating. For this quiz you will be focusing on a series of ir verbs. These new verb vocabulary words are:

English Spanish Pronounced (Phonetically) As
to abolish abolir ă-bō-lear
to admit admitir ăd-mē-tear
to assist asistir ă-sis-tear
to assume asumir ă-sūe-mear
to fight combatir cŏm-bă-tear
to consume consumir cŏn-sūe-mear
to decide decidir dāy-sē-dear
to describe describir dāy-scrē-bear
to divide dividir dē-vē-dear
to invade invadir in-vă-dear
to occur ocurrir ō-cū-rrear (The double 'r' should be sounded out by rolling the 'r' with the tongue.)
to permit permitir pĕr-mē-tear
to polish pulir pū-lear
to transmit transmitir trans-mē-tear
to unite unir ū-near

One thing you will notice here is that the Spanish verbs are very closely related to their English counterparts. This closeness should make it quite easy to remember them. Still, practice does make perfect so please take the time to review each word, listen to how it sounds so the ear can become familiar with it and then when you are ready, move on to the quiz section.

Below there are ten sentences that each has a Spanish verb that is capitalized. From the answers provided, see if you can determine the correct counterpart. Although this may seem easy, you will need to pay close attention and not rush through the quiz too fast or you could be tricked.
