Verbs: Present 1 is the tenth (assuming read left to right) skill in the Spanish language tree. It teaches how to conjugate the two types of regular verbs (-er and -ar) and some common irregular verbs through three lessons.

Grammar NotesEdit

Verb ConjugationEdit

To conjugate a regular verb, you must take off the last part of the verb (-er, -ir, -ar) and add an ending. Note that the -ir verbs are mostly irregular and do not follow these rules; it is best to learn them by heart:

Person -er ending -er example: correr -ar ending -ar example: hablar
I (yo) -o corro -o hablo
you (tú) -es corres -as hablas
you (usted) -e corre -a habla
he/she (él/ella) -e corre -a habla
we (nosotros/nosotras) -emos corremos -amos hablamos
you (vosotros/vosotras) -éis corréis -áis habláis
you (ustedes) -en corren -an hablan
they (ellos/ellas) -en corren -an hablan


Note: verbs from this point on are in the infinitive (unconjugated) from. You will need to conjugate them in lessons
