How to Learn Basic Spanish Verbs – Part 1
There are three basic groups of Spanish verbs, in these articles we will look at the regular AR, ER and IR verbs.
A verb is a word that means everything from an action to an opinion, so laugh, go, like, hate, love, drink, fall, smile, hear, write turn, are all examples of verbs. In English the verb is not changed by who is doing the action. As an example;
In these phrases, “I like cheese”, “we like cheese” and “you like cheese”, the verb “like” stays the same. In Spanish the form of the verb is changed by who is doing the doing. It might sound odd now but it will make sense later!
So lets look at the three main verb types in Spanish. They are the verbs that end in the letters ar, er and ir. they can then be subdivided into regular and irregular. As we are just starting we will stick to the regular verbs.
