Verb Conjugation, part II/La conjugación de verbos, parte II
This lesson, we'll learn the present tense conjugation of -er verbs, such as the previous example, comer (to eat). So the root of this word is com-. (I've made bold the suffixes, so don't get that confused with the accented syllable.)

Pronoun - conjugated verb
Yo - como
Tú - comes
Él, ella, usted - come
Nosotros - comemos
Vosotros - coméis
Ellos, ellas, ustedes - comen

And while we're at it, let's go ahead and conjugate the final verb - the -ir ending, using vivir (to live).

Yo - vivo
Tú - vives
Él, ella, usted - vive
Nosotros - vivimos
Vosotros - vivís
Ellos, ellas, ustedes - viven

So there you have them. For practice (hehe...who am I kidding? oh well), conjugate on your own the verbs estudiar, beber, and recibir - to study, to drink, and to receive.

What's the winking face for? No, there are lots of irregularly conjugated verbs.

*sigh* I have to rant somewhere...today was my first day of school, and unless my schedule changes to my advantage, my Spanish teacher this year is the most incompetent woman I have ever, ever met. I honestly thought she was kidding - you know, making fun of the Texan accent so prevalent when we speak Spanish - but she really DOES pronounce "Repaso C" "Ray-PASO Say."

the wrinkly face is a wink... since I know that all natural languages have irregular verbs... I was just asking like one of those students who isn't on his 8th language or something.

As per your Spanish teacher, you and your ears have my deepest condolances.

Ah, okay. That's what I thought. (Luckily, my schedule did change, and I have a much more competent teacher now! cheers.) I wish I could somehow make this a post worthy of being in a lessons thread, but I don't want to add anything right now.

Unos verbos irregulares/Irregular Verbs
In this lesson, I'll introduce two of the most commonly used verbs that happen to be irregular - that is, they do not follow the conjugation that other verbs of their kind do. The first verb is tener - meaning "to have." It is conjugated as follows in the present tense:
Yo tengo
tienes
Él, ella, Ud. tiene
Nosotros/as tenemos
Vosotros/as tenéis
Ellos, ellas, Uds. tienen

With tener, you'll notice that there is a stem change in three forms AND in the yo form, instead of it being "teno," it is a -go verb. But the nosotros and vosotros forms never have a stem change.

Next is the verb ser, which means "to be."
Yo soy
eres
Él, ella, Ud. es
Nosotros/as somos
Vosotros/as sois
Ellos, ellas, Uds. son

Since this verb is completely irregular (and used quite often), all it takes is memorization of each form and the pronoun that goes with them.

Cool... lesons. Just like Spanish I all over again.

Anywho, I've been taking French this year after three years of Spanish and I haven't used Spanish since I left México on July 1. I thought I'd drop in and try to get some practice here.

¡Olé!

Woohoo! Someone posted! Of course you can ask questions. Sorry to hear your teacher's not too great...I can identify with that. Ask away, and I/we'll try to answer everything.

I've been learning spanish on my own for a while now. My two biggest obstacles are building my vocabulary and figuring out sentence structure. I'm using flash cards for my vocabulary, can you help with sentence structure?
