  3.5 Verbs ending with -er

As also ar-verbs and ir-verbs the er-verb type has regular and irregular forms. We now have a look at the regular ones.

First 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 comer (to eat) is com (-er was removed). Then the conjugate endings are put in place:

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

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


  yo como I eat
 tú comes you eat
  él come he eats
  ella come she eats
 nosotros comemos we eat (masculine)
 nosotras comemos we eat (feminine)
  vosotros coméis you eat (masculine)
 vosotras coméis you eat (feminine)
 ellos comen they eat (masculine)
  ellas comen they eat (feminine)


Here you find now a summary of all three conjugation types. As you can see the basic logic is the same. Now it's up to you to get them into your head:
