Conjugation of the Spanish verb ver means “to see” or “to look,” and its conjugation is mostly regular, although there are some differences between the past participle, visto (seen), and the first-person singular present, veo (I see). Similarly, when other verbs are derived from ver, such as foresee (to preview or to foresee) and entrever (to partly see), they should follow the same conjugation pattern.
