1 AKA (Also known as) Boot Verbs

2 What is a stem changing verb? Ordinarily to conjugate a verb, we just need to drop the ending –ar, -er, -ir and add the personal endings. ( Click to see.) -ar personal endings Example: caminar-o -amos -as -áis stem ending -a -an

3 Lets stop to remember -er and -ir personal endings. -er personal endings Example: correr -o -emos -es -éis stem ending -e -en ( Click to see the next.) Example: escribir -ir personal endings -o -imos stem ending -es -ís -e -en

4 In regular verbs the stem does not change. But in stem changing verbs the stem does have a change. (Click to see.) One change is u changes to ue Jugar yo juegonosotros jugamos tú juegas vosotros jugáis él juega ellos juegan You can draw a boot around the forms that change.

5 Sometimes the o changes to ue Almorzar yo almuerzo nosotros almorzamos tú almuerzas vosotros almorzáis él almuerza ellos almuerzan You can draw a boot around the forms that change. The forms outside the boot (nosotros and vosotros) do not have the stem change.

6 Some other o ue verbs are dormir and poder. Make sure use the correct personal endings for –er and –ir verbs duermo dormimos Duermes dormís duerme duermen

7 Poder is o to ue puedo podemos puedes podéis puede pueden

8 There is also a stem change e ie. Some of the verbs that have this stem change are also irregular in the yo form, For example the go-go verbs tener and venir. (they have go in the yo form) Tener tengotenemos tienestenéis tienetienen

9 VENIR vengo venimos vienes venís viene vienen

10 Other e ie verbs are: pensar, entender, preferir, empezar, querer and many others. (In the next unit we will see the last stem change which is e i.) So, now for the big question… (Click to see.) How can I tell if a verb is stem changing or not? Unfortunately…

11 …you cannot just look at the verb and know that. So, the trick is plenty of repetition aloud, listening, writing and using. You will quickly become used to how each verb sounds! Remember: Practice makes permanent! Now, please add all these verbs to your verb sheet.
