How do you conjugate verbs ending in -----ir? In school we are working on this and the teacher is giving us a test soon on ----ar, ----er, and ----ir, yet has not gone over ----ir, mainly due to the huge noise level of the class (I din't take spanish in middle school and now I'm stuck with the students who do the worst) so I need help with this.

Yo- nadar cross out ----ar ending add an "o" Get nado (conjugated

tu- nadas

el / ella / usted - nada

nosotros: nadamos

vosotros: nadais

ellos/ellas/ustedes: nadan

Please do not use alt text or the symbols on the bottom, my computer will not show that.

Follow this link to get to the SpanishDict Reference Page that is the basic introduction to the present tense of the ar, er, and ir verbs. I think it will walk you through what you are looking for. If you cannot print the page for further study, you can copy it out by hand and use it to study or for review.

Here is the link, just "click" on it ----> Present Tense, ar, er, ir verbs

I hope this is what you need and wish you all the best in your studies.

...ir verbs are conjugated as follows. You first drop the ir ending and add the following for each form -o, -es, -e, -imos, -ís. -en

for example the verb escribir (to write) becomes *(yo) escribo *(tú) escribes *(Ud., él. ella) escribe *(nosotros) escribimos *(vosotros) escribís *(Uds., ellas, ellos) escriben

Conjugating -ir verbs is very similar to conjugating -er verbs. Here is an -er verb:

yo como tu comes el come (put an accent over the e) nosotros comemos vosotros comeis (put an accent over the e) ellos comen

For an -ir verb, you change only the nosotros and vosotros rules, so:

yo vivo tu vives el vive nosotros vivimos vosotros vivis (accent over the i) ellos viven

If you can see videos on your computer, watch this one: http://www.spanishdict.com/learn/show/6

The teacher goes through all the conjugations and there is no noisy classroom in the background!

Good luck on your test...
