-ER & -IR Verbs As we saw in the previous presentation, there are three conjugations of verbs in Spanish: –AR, –ER, and –IR. -ER and –IR verbs are often studied together because all of their endings (except one) are identical.
BEBER Let’s look at an example, the verb BEBER, which means “to drink.” It ends in –ER, so it is included in this class.
BEBER The verb can be split into two parts: The base: BEB- The infinitive ending: -ER
BEBER Now let’s say “I drink.” Start with the base: BEB- When you talk about yourself, add –O, just as you did for the –AR verbs.
