Haber is an interesting verb, in that it can only be used for a couple of specific uses:
- Used as an auxiliary for the perfect tenses, where it can be conjugated.
- Used to mean "there is/are" in its impersonal form.
Earlier in the tree, we learned hay meaning "there is", which is an example of the latter usage. This skill teaches a couple other versions of this verb in other tenses, including the future and the subjunctive, which we haven't learned yet.
Lesson 1 Edit
- hay = there is/are
- hubo = there was/were (preterite)
- habrá = there will be (future)
- había = there was/were (imperfect)
- haya = there is/are (subjunctive)
