How they change This is a rule you can use for any regular –er/–ir verbs. To conjugate a regular –ar verb, drop the –er/–ir and add the appropriate ending. The best way to see this is to demonstrate. Did you notice the only differences between –er and –ir verbs is in the nosotros form? We will use the verbs comer (to eat) and vivir (to live). Once you learn to conjugate one verb, you can conjugate any regular verb.
comer (to eat) yo como tú comes él come ella come Ud. come nosotros comemos nosotras comemos ellos comen ellas comen Uds. comen 1rst person 2nd person 3rd person Singular Plural
What it means: When you say either Yo como or Como, you are saying I eat. You will note that como is only associated with the subject pronoun yo. Similarly, when you say Tú comes or Comes you are saying You eat. Notice that it is important to include the subject pronoun when you use 3 rd person because the subject has different possibilities. Come can mean He eats, She eats, or You (formal) eat.
vivir (to live) Yo vivo tú vives él vive ella vive Ud. vive ellos* viven ellas** viven Uds. viven *mixed group or all boys**all girls nosotros* vivimos nosotras** vivimos 1rst person 2nd person 3rd person Plural Singular
