There are three types of regular verbs in Spanish: verbs that end in –ar (you know already) verbs that end in –er, and verbs that end in –ir. -ar verbs: Hablar yo hablonosotros hablamos tú hablasvosotros habláis él, ella hablaellos hablan
Now for –er verbs: To form –er verbs, take off the –er and then add the following endings: comer (to eat) -o-emoscomocomemos -es-éiscomescoméis -e-encomecomen Notice that the only difference between –er verbs and – ar verbs is that you use es instead of as: -ar -er -o-amos-o-emos -as-áis-es-éis -a-an-e-en-a-an-e-en
Now for –ir verbs. Drop the –ir and add the following endings: abrir (to open) -o-imosabroabrimos -es-ísabresabrís -e-enabreabren Do you see what the difference is between –er and –ir verbs? Theyre just alike except for the nosotros and vosotros forms: -er -ir -o-emos-o-imos -es-éis-es-ís -e-en-e-en
So the only difference between –ar verbs and –er verbs is that you use es instead of as in the –er verbs. And the only difference between –er verbs and –ir verbs is the nosotros and vosotros forms.
So when youre conjugating verbs, be sure you know if the infinitive (the form ending in –ar or – er or -ir; e.g., hablar and comer and abrir are infinitives) ends with an –ar, –er, or –ir so youll know what ending to put on it: You talk: hablas HABLARwe talk: hablamos You eat: comes COMERwe eat: comemos You open: abres ABRIRwe open: abrimos
