Conjugates of Weak Acids/Bases

I understand that Strong Acids have Weak Conjugate Bases and that Strong Bases have Weak Conjugate Acids...

Does this mean that Weak Acids have Strong Conjugate Acids? Why or Why not?

Can someone please thoroughly explain this to me. I am having a difficult time with weak acid and weak base reactions.

Weak acids and bases will be discussed more thoroughly in 14B. For the 14A final, a conceptual understand that weak acids and bases do not completely ionize will probably suffice. Only calculations on strong acids and bases where they completely ionize will be on the final.
