Spanish –ar verbs. Verbs in General.
English and Spanish both conjugate verbs. They can be organized as first, 2nd, and 3rd person. If you need to, you may review the pronoun presentation on the main page. In English, we do not change the verb much according to the subject. In Spanish, the verb endingwill often tell you who or what the subject is. Observe.
This is a rule you can use for any regular
–ar verbs. To conjugate a regular –ar verb, drop the –ar and add the appropriate ending. The best way to see this is to demonstrate. We will be looking at the verb “hablar” (to talk) first, then “cantar” (to sing).
When you say either “Yo hablo” or “Hablo”, you are saying “I speak”. You will note that hablo is only associated with the subject pronoun “yo”. Similarly, when you say “Tú hablas” or “Hablas” you are saying “You speak”. Notice that it is important to include the subject pronoun when you use 3rd person because the subject has different possibilities. “Habla” can mean “He speaks”, “She speaks”, or “You speak”.
