How to conjugate Hacer in Spanish

To do, to make Irregular

Introduction

Hacer is the Spanish verb meaning "to do / to make". It is extremely versatile, and one common use is to express the weather or time. In this sense, it is different from English, whereby we would use "to be". For example: "hace frío" is how to say "it is cold", which directly translates to "it makes cold". An example regarding time: "Hace mucho tiempo que no te veo" means "It has been a long time since I have seen you". Again, the direct translation from English does not work in this case.

Similar verbs to hacer include: cumplir (to achieve), realizar (to carry out), fabricar (to make), preparar (to prepare), producir (to produce).
