Conjugating -AR verbs

Conjugating AR verbs What does It mean to conjugate? To conjugate a verb means to change the infinitive verb form so that it agrees with the different possible subjects. Here is the present tense conjugation of the infinitive "to speak": I speak you speak he speaks

she speaks we speak you-all speak they speak Spanish conjugation meanings The present tense in Spanish can mean three things. The Spanish phrase "yo hablo" can mean: yo hablo I speak

yo hablo I am speaking yo hablo I do speak Subject pronouns A subject pronoun is a personal pronoun. That means it takes the place of a name and is the subject that the verb needs to match. In English our subject pronouns are: I, You, He, She, We, It, and They.

In Spanish, those same pronouns become: Yo, Tu, El, Ella, Usted Nosotros/ as, Vosotros/as, ellos, ellas, and ustedes. What makes a Spanish verb? Spanish infinitives are divided into two parts: the ending and the stem. The ending is the last two letters. Remember, all infinitives end in -ar, -er, or -ir. The stem is everything that's left after you remove the ending.

habl + ar = hablar com + er = comer viv + ir = vivir How to conjugate AR verbs In this lesson, we will use the model -ar verbs: hablar. In Spanish, you conjugate verbs by changing the ending depending on the pronoun used: Drop the AR ending and add: O for yo

As for tu A for el, ella or usted (ud.) Amos for nosotros/as Ais for vosotros/as An for ellos, ellas, or ustedes (uds.) Hablar (to Speak) Step 1- Take the AR off of the verb so it becomes habl Step 2- Add the ending that matches your subject. Yo hablo

Tu hablas El/Ella/Usted habla Nosotros/nosotras hablamos Vosotros/vosotras hablais Ellos/ellas/ustedes hablan Now that you have conjugated the verb hablar, you can follow the same rules to conjugate any regular verb ending in AR. Try conjugating the following verbs on a sheet of paper:
