Spanish Verb Asistir Conjugation

Asistir is a Spanish verb that can mean—you guessed it—"to assist" or "to help." But it is used more often for "to attend" or "to go," as to an event, a school, or a class.

It can also mean "to attend to," such as in working to resolve a problem or in taking care of a medical patient.

Asistir is conjugated regularly, so you can use the charts here for conjugating most other -ir verbs as well. You'll find listings here for all the simple tenses in both the indicative and subjunctive moods, such as the present, both types of the past (imperfect and preterite), the future, and the conditional. And of course, also included are the past participle, gerund, and periphrastic future as well as the commands or imperative mood.

When talking about attending something, asistir is typically followed by the preposition a or the contraction al.

As a verb for "to help," asistir is somewhat formal. In informal situations, such as everyday speech, a more common verb is ayudar.

In the conjugation charts below, the conjugation itself is the same for any of the meanings of asistir, but the examples provided apply to the most common use, "to attend to."
