Let’s practice all kinds of ways you can use Ir.

Intro: Join us on a rigorous, step-by-step journey to fluency. I’m Timothy and this is LearnCraft Spanish.

Today we’re going to use a big quiz to practice everything we’ve been learning about Ir and Haber this week.

Before we do, I want to point something out about the adverbs bien and mal. Most broadly they’re translated as “well” and “badly”. But note that they can also be used as moral evaluations. For example, estuvo mal could mean a variety of things — it might be that someone was doing poorly in a particular moment, or it could even be translated as “it was wrong”. And estuvo bien might be “it was right”. So in this quiz, watch for one or two uses of the words “right” and “wrong”, and remember to translate them as bien or mal.

All right, we have a long quiz today, so let’s dive in.
