How do I get a list of verb conjugation endings?
I would like a list of both present tense and preterit past endings for verbs, where they are listed all on one page and in columns beside each other. I would like one sample from each of the regular -ar, -er, and -ir verbs as well as the present and preterit past for the following commonly used irregular verbs: hacer, decir, tener, ver, estar, ser, and ir> Please help provide this for me or refer me to where one is available. It would be very helpful in the little Spanish classes I teach. Thank you. sg
Your request is, basically, unreasonable. There are pages that treat the inflections of verbs (but almost always treat -ar -er -ir verbs separately, that being the traditional manner of presentation). The separate treatment of specific verbs/conjugations has a long history (which many find helpful). The information is all there, although, perhaps, not on a single page, nor in a format directed specifically to your particular needs.
In what way is your complaint different from asking, "Why doesn't someone write a book that is directed to my specific needs and that answers my specific questions in the format that I would find most useful?"
I find it amazing that you're teaching a Spanish class and don't already have this information at your fingertips.
A few days ago I posted a spreadsheet that has over 100 verbs conjugated. Take a look at it here: [Download Link]
If the link doesn't work, just copy and paste the following link into your browser.

Hola and Welcome to SpanishDict Sharon!
I am not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but on this site there is a conjugator that you could use to make it easier.
Hope this was somewhat helpful.
Si vas al Diccionario de la Real Academia y buscas el verbo, puedes hacer clic en la palabra y ver cómo se conjuga en verbo. No muestra ejemplos del uso, pero te puede ayudar.
Have you every seen the pocket, paperback books that list varying numbers of Spanish verbs? (300-600, et. al)
They usually show what you will see in the conjugator as well as sample sentences, the present and past participles, and anything else pertinent to the verb.
They are a rather indispensable tool for serious language students.
