Your Spanish teacher and textbooks only teach you the most basic definitions of a verb, but the vast majority of Spanish verbs have many other meanings and uses in idiomatic expressions. 

In fact, many very common Spanish verbs aren’t taught all. You’ll likely go months and years before you’re exposed to the majority of the everyday uses of a verb, leaving you lost and confused in conversation and unable to fully express yourself.

All About Spanish Verbs shortens that learning curve and improves your understanding and usage of the language by examining the most essential Spanish verbs and teaching you the most common uses of them in everyday speech through practical examples.
