Question which word does viendo derive from?

Hello everyone!

I am wondering from which word does "viendo" come from.
viendo means "seeing" and "to see" in spanish is "ver".

I want to know the present,past and future tense of the verb i.e the spanish equivalent for "seeing,saw and will see".

Pl guide me.

What's your Spanish level, Raji? I would start by the present of a regular verb. This one has got some tiny irregularities. Nevertheless, here it goes:

Presente de indicativo del verbo VER
yo veo
ves
él, ella, usted ve
nosotros, nosotras vemos
vosotros, vosotras veis
ellos, ellas, ustedes ven

Hello Alfonso,

You can take myself in the beginner level , I am familiar with the conjugations you gave in your reply.

But does "viendo" come from any of these conjugations?

I am weak in spanish just started to learn please bear with me.

Viendo is the progressive form of the verb to see. In Spanish many words
that end with the word iendo, ando, endo correspond to ing words in English

Please, Raji, don't start by learning the full conjugation of Ver nor the one of any other verb.


VER is a second conjugation verb. You know which conjugation it is from by the ending of the infinitive:
  • Primera conjugación: -AR. Hablar, trabajar, cantar, etc.
  • Segunda conjugación: -ER. Comer, beber, ver, etc.
  • Tercera conjugación: -IR. Escribir, partir, vivir, etc.
-iendo (viendo) is the ending of gerundios de la segunda conjugación (gerunds, -ing forms for English language).

Te estoy viendo: I'm seeing you (I'm not joking ).

I should add that -iendo is the ending of second and third conjugation verbs: viendo (VER), viviendo (VIVIR).

Thanks a lot for your correction, Iris.
