conjugation using the YO= I form

In Spanish in order to speak correctly and make sentences in the present tense for the YO form the endings ER, IR, and AR need to dropped and then add "O"

  • Example:

 Yo hablo (I speak)

yo como (I eat)

yo escribo(I write)

  • You need to be careful with jugar (to play) and dormir (to sleep).  These two verbs are stem-changing verbs.  This mean the root changes before you add the "o".

  • For example:

yo duermo (I sleep)

yo juego (I play)

Conjugation Rules for Third person singular He/ él and She/ ella

you keep the root of the verb and add "e" for the IR and ER & "a" for the AR endings

  • For example:

él habla (he Talks, he speaks)

ella come (she eats)

él escribe (he writes)

  • Remember that to sleep and to play are stem-changing verbs (the root changes as well).  For example:

él duerme (he sleeps)

ella juega (she plays)
