  3.4 Verbs ending with -ir

The second verb type is the one ending with -ir. Here again are regular and irregular forms. We will start with the regular ones.

Again we need to find the stem of the verb that is done by removing the standard verb ending of the infinite (not changed) form. The stem of recibir (to receive) is recib (-ir was removed). Then the conjugate endings are put in place:

yo -o nosotros / nosotras -imos
-es vosotros / vosotras -ís
él, ella -e ellos / ellas -en

  Now you take the stem and form the conjugation by using the right endings:

  yo recibo I receive
  tú recibes you receive
  él recibe he receives
  ella recibe she receives
  nosotros recibimos we receive (masculine)
  nosotras recibimos we receive (feminine)
 vosotros recibís you receive (masculine)
  vosotras recibís you receive(feminine)
  ellos reciben they receive (masculine)
 ellas reciben they receive (feminine)
