ir + a forever

a story of eternal love


nce upon a time there were two lovers.  Their names were ir and a.  One day they decided to take a romantic walk in the forest where they found a beautiful tree on which to carve their names in a heart.  
The heart said . . .

ir + a


As lovers usually do, on their long walks in the forest, ir + a would make plans together . . .
ir + a would talk about the future.

Nosotros  vamos a casarnos.

We are going to get married.

ir and a are in love forever!!! Whenever you see ir (in any form) a will be close by.  

ir + a would talk about places they wanted to go.

Nosotros vamos a ir a Barcelona. 

We are going to go to Barcelona. 

ir and a are in love forever!!! Whenever you see ir (in any form) a will be close by.  

Their love was eternal.  No matter what mood ir was in, a was always there, right by his side . . .





voy a

vas a

va a

vamos a 

van a 

It wasn't always perfect.  Sometimes ir would go shopping with de or a would go to the movies with el,

(ir de compras/ir al cine).

but their love was strong. 

ir +a forever.


t would seem that  ir + a have the perfect relationship but no, there's trouble in paradise. Whenever a is with el they are so attracted to each other that they contract and turn into al. But when a is next to la, los or

The love triangle: ir + a + el 


las they remain separate. Maybe ir is stupid for always forgiving a but that's the way it is for them.  


ir+a forever. . . FOREVER!!

a el    al

a la

a las

el baño : Yo voy al baño.

la playa: Yo voy a la playa.

Please, don't you be the cause of a broken heart.  When you talk about your plans for the future and where you want to go, don't forget to keep ir and a together . . . forever.
