3 Verb Conjugation for Regular Verbs Rule: The endings below apply to most verbs except irregular verbs such as sein and haben but other verbs have other slight changes to them. Spielen is an example of a regular verb. Just take off the –en- and add the regular endings. Spielen: SubjectVerb Ichspiele Duspielst Er/sie/esspielt Wirspielen Ihrspielt Sie/siespielen

4 For verbs ending in –ern like dauern or –eln like klingeln you take off only the n not the en and add the endings. Verbs ending in –den like baden or –ten like antworten keep their e before the du, er, sie, es and ihr endings e.g. Badest or Antwortet. Some verbs get an Umlaut in the du and er, sie, es form. Such as halten: es hält. Some verbs change their vowels in the du and er, sie, es form. e.g. Helfen hilft.

5 Irregular Verbs E.g. Sein, Haben There arent any rules. You just have to learn them. E.g. Sein SubjectVerb Ichbin Dubist Er/sie/esist Wirsind Ihrseid Sie/siesind
