I don't get it when it means to put the -ar or -er at the end of the spainsh word and I don't know when to take it off. For example, "ofrecer" means "to offer" but how do I just say "offer"? How do I know when to make it to where it doen't have the word "to" in front of it'

Hi Maria
It is knowing the difference between a verb and a noun. To offer in English is a verb
I offer
You offer
He/She/It offers
etc
However, an offer can also be a noun,
what do think of this offer

Just do the same in Spanish
To offer - Ofrecer
An offer - Una oferta

Hi, Maria. English grammar is different from Spanish grammar. In English, we form an infinitive by adding "to," but in Spanish it is formed by adding a suffix, either -ir, -er, or -ar. Tell me what it is you want to say in English, and I'll try to tell you the Spanish. Give the context in which you want to say "offer."
