There is a confusion that I would like to get answers from friends here.

After I started learning Spanish, I found one thing that is pretty hard for me learn and remember so that I would like to ask if anyone knows the answer.
My confusion is that in Spanish, words have different functions or forms when they are in different tenses so that sometimes am not able to get the meaning from the dictionary. Is there a rule for this so that it's easier for me know what the basic form is, then I can remember the meaning and which the tense is. I think that should be useful and helpful for me to learn Spanish.
Actually English is my second language so that you might get confused about what I am asking. Please let me know if you guy get any confusion with my question.
I am very interested in learning Spanish because I like the people from centrol and south American and their culture. That's why I want to learn Spanish and it's good for me to communicate with these people.

Thank you, guys!

Yes, preterit forms end with an accented vowel, or iste/aste, or ieron/aron, etc.

Play around at this site for a few hours, and you'll have mastered most of it.

Thank you, James and P.R

In English, for example, add ed at the end for regular words for past tense. Is there any basic rules similar to English in Spanish?

I understand exactly what you mean, but there is no rule or trick to discovering the infinitive of a conjugated verb. It just comes with practice and knowledge. Before long, you will see patterns emerge, and you can quickly guess what the infinitive must be. One of the good things about Spanish is that it is a very regular grammar; even the irregular verbs tend to be regular in their irregularity!
