  3.5 Verbs ending with -er

As also ar-verbs and ir-verbs the er-verb type has regular and irregular forms. We now have a look at the regular ones.

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 comer (to eat) is com (-er was removed). Then the conjugate endings are put in place:

yo -o nosotros / nosotras -emos
-es vosotros / vosotras -éis
él, ella -e ellos / ellas -en

  Now you take the stem and form the conjugation by using the right endings:
  yo como
  tú comes
  él come
  ella come
  nosotros comemos
  nosotras comemos
  vosotros coméis
  vosotras coméis
  ellos comen
  ellas comen

I eat
you eat
he eats
she eats
we eat (masculine)
we eat (feminine)
you eat (masculine)
you eat (feminine)
they eat (masculine)
they eat (feminine)

Here you find now a summary of all three conjugation types. As you can see the basic logic is the same. Now it's up to you to get them into your head:
