SABER Did you catch the irregular YO form? This is a very common mistake students make… SABO IS NOT A VERB FORM! Do you remember how to say I dont know in Spanish? ¡No sé! Thinking about this will help remind you of its irregular YO form.
CONOCER Means to know in terms of familiarity. I know Marco, because he is in my class. I know West Towne Mall, because I shop there with my mom. I know Oregon, because I grew up there.
CONOCER Also has an irregular YO form. There are some other related verbs that work like CONOCER in the YO. (Introducir, Conducir, Producir) Its a pronunciation change that makes the verb sound better.
