Irish Gaelic: Verb Bí, present tense
You can't even begin to speak any language without being able to say "is" in all of its many forms. "I am happy", "She was there", "Is there any more ice cream?" and the whole host of questions: "Where is the bathroom?" "Who..?"
It's probably the most common verb that you'll use, and in the beginning, nearly every sentence I repeated after the voices on tape had "is" in it somewhere. The base form of the verb is bí
The present tense of the verb bí (is) is tá. This is an irregular verb, so you have to memorize the different forms. .
