Verbs are words we use to express an action, without a verb we do not have a sentence.
Therefore they are very important to learn if we want to learn Spanish. Spanish
Verb conjugation can be a bit tricky especially for English speakers as Spanish
verbs are conjugated in a very different way to English verbs.
In English the person of the verb always precedes the verb itself while in Spanish
the ending of the verb conjugated, shows the person.
The verb "to walk" in English once conjugated is: I walk, you walk, he walks, etc
And in Spanish the equivalent to "to walk", "andar" is: ando, andas, anda, etc.
As the endings are different for each person we do not need to say the person before the verb.
In Spanish we classify the verbs into three big groups according to the endings
of their infinitive form, that is, the form we find in the dictionary. These groups
are: -ar, -er and -ir.
We also distinguish in Spanish between regular and irregular verbs when it comes
to conjugating the different tenses. We must say at this point that a regular verb
in the present tense of the indicative mood, for example, can be irregular in other
tense. So, in other words, a regular verb can be irregular.
On the verb training pages, we will provide you with some general uses, spelling
rules, big list of regular and irregular verbs to choose from (including the reflexive
verbs) and other great resources for learning Spanish and the Spanish verbs. We
recommend, especially for the beginners, to start learning the
Present Simple of the indicative mood, as it is the
most widely used Spanish tense and very easy to learn.
