Two verbs in a row Sometimes you need to use two verbs in a row. For example: We need to clean. Need is the first verb and clean is the second. In English, just like in Spanish, you only conjugate the first verb; the second verb is left out in the infinitive. To need is conjugated with we. need. To clean is left in the infinitive; that’s why you see “to” in front of it.
In Spanish We need to clean translates to: Nosotros necesitamos limpiar Necesitar is conjugated with nosotros= necesitamos Limpiar is left in the infinitive (Remember that verbs in the infinitive end in –ar, -er, or –ir in Spanish; in English they have a “to” in front of them)
