simple past tense: ser, ir

These two essential verbs are very irregular in the “simple past” tense. BUT – they’re exactly the same! Saying was or went, is usually written the same.

to be ser
I was eu f ui
you/he/she were (was) vocĂȘ/ele/ela f oi
to go ir
I went eu f ui
you/he/she went vocĂȘ/ele/ela f oi

* More accurately called, the preterit indicative tense.
