Present Tense of -ar Verbs

P. 84

Realidades 1


VERBS

  • A verb usually names the action in a sentence.

  • We call the verb that ends in -r the INFINITIVE


VERBS

  • The INFINITIVE is the form you would find in a Spanish dictionary.

  • In English it means

  • “to + (verb)”


Enseñar

Estudiar

Hablar

Bailar

Cantar

Dibujar

Escuchar

These are some INFINITIVES you already know:

  • Esquiar

  • Jugar

  • Montar

  • Nadar

  • Pasar tiempo

  • Patinar

  • And several more!


IN SPANISH:

  • The last letter or letters of the verb tell you who does the action.


IN SPANISH:

  • To change an INFINITIVE to a form that tells who is doing the action, remove the -ar and add the appropriate ending.


IN SPANISH:

  • This action is called CONJUGATION

STEM / ENDING

  • For every INFINITIVE in Spanish there is a STEM and an ENDING.


STEM / ENDING

  • For example, for “estudiar,”…”estudi” is the stem.

  • “ar” is the ending.


STEM / ENDING

  • So, the endings for -ar verbs are:

  • o, as, a, amos, áis, an


THE VOSOTROS

  • Verb forms ending in áis, such as estudiáis, are used mainly in the country of Spain only.
