How to Conjugate the Spanish Verb Conocer in Indicative Tense

The indicative tense is the most commonly used mood in Spanish. We use it to talk about facts, habits, descriptions, and to make statements. You can use it to describe events in the past, present, and future, so it’s quite useful. The indicative forms of conocer help us point out people and places we know. We’ll study the following indicative tenses: indicative present, indicative future, indicative preterite, indicative imperfect, and indicative conditional.

Indicative Present

We use the indicative present tense to talk about actions in the current time. In the case of the verb conocer, you can use its indicative present form to describe someone or someplace you currently know. For example, you can say, “Él conoce el valle como la palma de su mano,” which means, “He knows the valley like the back of his hand.”

Indicative Future

The indicative future tense is used to discuss events that will happen. You can use conocer in this tense to talk about places or people you will know in the future. Notice that “meet” is used instead of “know” when talking about people, because the action is taking place later in time. For example, you can say, “Conoceré a mi tío el fin de semana,” which means, “I will meet my uncle on the weekend.” You can still use “know” when talking about a place in phrases like, “Conoceré bien el campus dentro de un par de semanas” which means, “I will know the campus well after a couple of weeks.”

With the indicative preterite tense, we can describe past events. The indicative preterite conjugations of conocer allow us to recall people or places we knew but don’t anymore.

Indicative Conditional

With the indicative conditional tense, we can create theories or hypothetical situations. You can use the verb conocer in this form to point out people or places you would know in a speculative event. Remember that, when using the indicative conditional in the future time to talk about people, you must use “meet” instead of “know.” For example, you can say, “Conocería más gente si saliera más seguido de la casa,” which means, “I would know more people if I left the house more often.”

How to Conjugate Conocer in the Imperative Tense
