Conjugating AR verbs

Cantar -to sing

Yo canto -----> Nosotros cantamos

cantas ------->Vosotros cantáis

El, Ella, Ud. canta ------->Ellos, Ellas, Uds. cantan


When conjugating the AR verbs, you have to look at the beginning of the sentence (usually the subject). For example: Yo canto en el auditorio. This translates to "I like to sing in the auditorium". Tú cantas conmigo. This translates to "You like to sing with me".

Conjugating ER verbs

Comer -to eat

Yo como -----> Nosotros comemos

comes ------> Vosotros coméis

El, Ella, Ud. come -----> Ellos, Ellas, Uds. comen


When conjugating the ER verbs, you do the same as the AR verbs, the only exception to that rule is instead of putting an a at the end for all the verbs (ex. cantas, cantan, etc.) you would just use the letter e (ex. comes, come, etc.). To conjugate these, you look at the subject to determine the correct ending change. For example: Nosotros comemos en la cafetería. This translates to "We like to eat in the cafeteria".

Conjugating IR verbs

Vivir - to live

Yo Vivo -------> Nosotros Vivimos

Vives ------> Vosotros Vivís

El, Ella, Ud. Vive ------> Ellos, Ellas, Ud. Viven


When conjugating IR verbs, there is a small change to how you would change the endings. With IR verbs, the endings are the same as the ER verbs (ex. tú vives) with the exception to Nosotros and Vosotros. Nosotros and Vosotros keep the i in the change (ex. Nosotros vivimos). To determine these endings, you also look at the subject in the front of the sentence. For example: Yo vivo en Carolina de norte.
