Spanish -ER Ending Verbs


When learning Spanish, one of the first things you'll encounter is the conjugation of verbs. Spanish verbs are classified into three groups: -ar, -er, and -ir. In this post, we will focus on -er verbs.

ER verbs are a group of verbs that end in -er in their infinitive form. Some examples include comer (to eat), beber (to drink), and leer (to read). Conjugating these verbs is easy once you understand the rules.

To conjugate an -er verb, you need to remove the -er ending and add the appropriate ending for the subject pronoun. Here are the endings for present tense conjugation:

  • Yo: -o (como - I eat)
  • Tú: -es (comes - you eat)
  • Él/ella/usted: -e (come - he/she/you (formal) eat)
  • Nosotros/nosotras: -emos (comemos - we eat)
  • Vosotros/vosotras: -éis (coméis - you all (informal) eat)
  • Ellos/ellas/ustedes: -en (comen - they/you all (formal) eat)

As you can see, the endings are added to the stem of the verb, which remains the same throughout the conjugation. Let's take the verb comer (to eat) as an example:

  • Yo como (I eat)
  • Tú comes (you eat)
  • Él/ella/usted come (he/she/you (formal) eat)
  • Nosotros/nosotras comemos (we eat)
  • Vosotros/vosotras coméis (you all (informal) eat)
  • Ellos/ellas/ustedes comen (they/you all (formal) eat)

Now, let's practice with some other -er verbs:

  • Beber (to drink)
  • Yo bebo (I drink)
  • Tú bebes (you drink)
  • Él/ella/usted bebe (he/she/you (formal) drink)
  • Nosotros/nosotras bebemos (we drink)
  • Vosotros/vosotras bebéis (you all (informal) drink)
  • Ellos/ellas/ustedes beben (they/you all (formal) drink)
  • Leer (to read)
  • Yo leo (I read)
  • Tú lees (you read)
  • Él/ella/usted lee (he/she/you (formal) read)
  • Nosotros/nosotras leemos (we read)
  • Vosotros/vosotras leéis (you all (informal) read)
  • Ellos/ellas/ustedes leen (they/you all (formal) read)

It's important to note that there are some irregular -er verbs that don't follow this pattern, such as tener (to have), which has the irregular stem ten- in the present tense (yo tengo, tú tienes, él/ella/usted tiene, nosotros/nosotras tenemos, vosotros/vosotras tenéis, ellos/ellas/ustedes tienen).

In conclusion, learning how to conjugate -er verbs is essential to communicate effectively in Spanish. With practice, it becomes easier to recognize the patterns and to use the verbs correctly in different contexts. Keep practicing and you'll soon be able to use -er verbs with ease!


Spanish -AR ending verbs


The Spanish language is rich in its verb conjugations, and one of the most commonly used is the -ar verb. This type of verb is one of the three main groups in Spanish verbs, alongside -er and -ir verbs. The -ar verb is also the largest group of the three, and it's important to understand its conjugation rules in order to speak and write Spanish correctly. In this blog post, we'll take a deep dive into the -ar verb, exploring its conjugation, common usage, and some tips on how to remember its different forms.

The -ar verb is a type of regular verb, meaning that it follows a specific conjugation pattern for each of the six different pronouns in Spanish: yo (I), tú (you, informal), él/ella/usted (he/she/you, formal), nosotros/nosotras (we), vosotros/vosotras (you all, informal), and ellos/ellas/ustedes (they/you all, formal). In order to conjugate an -ar verb, you take the stem of the verb (the part of the verb before the -ar ending) and add a specific ending based on the pronoun you're using.

Let's take the verb hablar (to speak) as an example. The stem of the verb is habl-, and we'll add the appropriate ending for each pronoun to see how the conjugation changes:

  • Yo hablo (I speak)
  • Tú hablas (you speak, informal)
  • Él/ella/usted habla (he/she/you speak, formal)
  • Nosotros/nosotras hablamos (we speak)
  • Vosotros/vosotras habláis (you all speak, informal)
  • Ellos/ellas/ustedes hablan (they/you all speak, formal)

As you can see, the -ar verb conjugation follows a predictable pattern, with the stem staying the same and only the ending changing. This is true for all -ar verbs, including those with irregular stems.

Now, let's explore some of the most commonly used -ar verbs in Spanish, along with some example sentences to help illustrate their usage.

  1. Hablar (to speak) Example: Yo hablo español muy bien. (I speak Spanish very well.)

  2. Trabajar (to work) Example: Ellos trabajan en la misma oficina. (They work in the same office.)

  3. Caminar (to walk) Example: Tú caminas rápido. (You walk fast.)

  4. Estudiar (to study) Example: Nosotros estudiamos para el examen. (We study for the exam.)

  5. Llegar (to arrive) Example: Ella llega tarde a todas partes. (She arrives late everywhere.)

  6. Bailar (to dance) Example: Vosotros bailáis muy bien. (You all dance very well.)

  7. Escuchar (to listen) Example: Él escucha música todos los días. (He listens to music every day.)

  8. Pagar (to pay) Example: Nosotras pagamos la cuenta del restaurante. (We pay the restaurant bill.)

  9. Tomar (to take, to drink) Example: Ellos toman café por la mañana. (They drink coffee in the morning.)

  10. Comprar (to buy) Example: Yo compro la comida en el supermercado. (I buy food at the supermarket.)

As you can see, the -ar verb is incredibly versatile, and these verbs are just the tip of the iceberg. The -ar verb can be used in a variety of contexts, from describing actions and habits to expressing emotions and desires.

Which language should I learn: German, French or Spanish?

There are countless reasons why anyone should learn a foreign language. But for most people, the biggest motivation lies with work. Being able to speak one or several foreign languages has become one of the most sought-after skill in the professional world. However, English does not suffice to be able to communicate in all work sectors

It is the official language of 29 countries including France, Canada, Switzerland, Monaco, Luxembourg, Senegal, Côte d’IvoireHaiti, Belgium, Rwanda, Togo, Mali and more.
France dominates in pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, aeronautics, energy production, and more. In addition, with global initiatives to promote development in impoverished areas of Africa, French is key. Many countries throughout North Africa, West Africa, Central Africa and East Africa have French as one of the official languages. Being able to communicate in French can land you consultant, non-profit, administration, and tons of other jobs.
French is also the official language of NATO, the United Nations, the Olympics, the Red Cross, and other international organizations. speaking French gives you an edge over other jobseekers.

2- Spanish
Spanish is the most spoken language in the world after English. It’s also the native language of more than 400 million people across 44 countries.
For those who want to do business, Spanish skills can be an asset for communicating in Spain and throughout Latin America. The considerable size of the Spanish-speaking population of the United States makes it even more attractive on a resume. Those who are in U.S who plan on working domestically in law, social services or in business can truly stand out by being proficient in Spanish.
Spanish is often said to be an easy language to learn. For example, Spanish is phonetic (you read words as they are written). However, the tenses and verb irregularities are more complicated than in Spanish than in a language like French. It’s also important to realize that for a non-native learning Spanish, you have to compete with native Spanish speakers.

3- German
Germany’s economy has been steadily growing, reaching far beyond the Rhine. Such growth has propelled the country into one of the world’s strongest economies. It’s in the top 10 for import and export partners for both the U.S. and the U.K. It’s also an official language of Austria and Switzerland, both of which boast strong economies, too.
German is the most common native language. It is spoken by more than 90 million people in the world.
However, many learners of German claim it is not the easiest to learn. High schoolers, for example, tend to have difficulty communicating in German, even after years of study (as opposed to a language like Spanish). This could be due to a lack of interest and motivation. If you’re going to learn German, it’s best to do so when you have the time and can buckle-down with your German lessons several times a week.
