Spanish Regular Verbs

Verbs in Spanish are categorized as either "regular" or "irregular". In the infinitive (the base form of the verb), regular verbs end en -ar, -er or -ir. Below we'll explore three common regular verbs: hablar, comer, and vivir. Read and listen to each regular verb below, then repeat it out loud.

to speak
to eat
to live

Regular -ar, -er and -ir verbs must be conjugated. Verbs are conjugated by removing the -ar, -er or -ir ending and adding a suffix. All regular -ar, -er, and -ir verbs are conjugated in the same way. Below we'll conjugate in present tense the verbs introduced above. Review each verb and it conjugations, listen to each conjugated verb, and then repeat each verb out loud.
