Haber is the fiftieth skill (assuming read left to right) in the Spanish language tree. It has only one lesson and teaches the Spanish verb haber in various common tenses.

Grammar NotesEdit

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.

Lessons Edit
