In Spanish, there are 2 types of past participles that you will learn: Regular and Irregular.
Regular Spanish verbs that are conjugated follow a similar scheme when formed. However, Spanish irregular past participles are slightly different. (Read more about irregular present participles on a previous post here).
Below, I will be reviewing for you some common Spanish irregular past participles that are used often in conversation.
Infinitive: Past Participles:
abrir – to open abierto (opened)
caer – to fall caído (fallen)
decir – to say dicho (said)
devolver – to return (something) devuelto (returned something)
volver – to return vuelto (returned)
