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).

what it means
What it means:

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”.

  • This is meant to be a review. If you have not studied it already, you may have difficulty.
  • If you want to learn Spanish, you will need to learn the –ar verb endings.
  • You can often tell what the subject is by the verb. Therefore in Spanish, it is not always necessary to include the subject.
  • Memorize these verb endings.
