Spanish Boot Verbs Lesson Plans


In present tense, there is a category of verbs called Spanish boot verbs, or Spanish stem changing verbs, because the stem of the Spanish verb changes and forms a boot shape when placed in a verb conjugation table. The tables below illustrate this change as well as the boot shape, highlighted in blue.

There are three categories of boot verbs:

  • vowel changes o → ue
  • vowel changes e → ie
  • vowel changes e → i

DORMIR (Example of o → ue)

duerme duermen
PENSAR (Example of e → ie)
