In Spanish, many useful expressions are formed by combining two verbs. When this occurs, the first verb is conjugated, while the second verb remains in the infinitive form. ir , viajar Yo voy a viajar a España. I am going to travel to Spain. acabar , comer acabas de comer. You have just eaten. saber , nadar Juan sabe nadar. Juan knows how to swim. volver , leer María vuelve a leer el libro. María reads the book again. One such expression combines the verb ir (conjugated) with an infinitive. The preposition "a" is always used. The formula is: ir a + infinitive = to be going to do something (in the near future) Voy a llevar a mi hermana a su casa. I am going to take my sister to her house. Vas a invitar a muchas muchachas.
