  3.3 Verbs ending with -ar

Every verb type has regular and irregular forms. We now have a look at the regular ones. Those are anyway the majority of the verbs.

First we need to find the stem of the verb that is done by removing the standard verb ending of the infinite (not changed) form. The stem of trabajar (to work) is trabaj (-ar was removed). Then the conjugate endings are put in place:

yo -o nosotros / nosotras -amos
-as vosotros / vosotras -áis
él, ella -a ellos / ellas -an

  Now you take the stem and form the conjugation by using the right endings:
  yo trabajo
  tú trabajas
  él trabaja
  ella trabaja
  nosotros trabajamos
  nosotras trabajamos
  vosotros trabajáis
  vosotras trabajáis
  ellos trabajan
  ellas trabajan
I work
you work
he works
she works
we work (masculine)
we work (feminine)
you work (masculine)
you work (feminine)
they work (masculine)
they work (feminine)

Here comes a second example. The stem of the verb hablar (to talk) is habl (ar was removed )

  Now again use the right endings to form the conjugation:
  yo hablo
  tú hablas
  él habla
  ella habla
  nosotros hablamos
  nosotras hablamos
  vosotros habláis
  vosotras habláis
  ellos hablan
  ellas hablan
I speak
you speak
he speaks
she speaks
we speak (masculine)
we speak (feminine)
you speak (masculine)
you speak (feminine)
they speak (masculine)
they speak (feminine)
