aprender - to learn aprendido - learned

The question I have is about adding "ido" to the root of spanish verb- does this function like adding "ed" to an english verb placing that verb in the past tense

Sure Eddy... I agree smile, but Spanish grammar takes more than a post (irregular verbs, exceptions, etc.) I tried to give him some examples to help him understand a little better.

Hi Benz
I think you should have mentioned the "ado" and "ido" are for "regular" verbs. Some irregular verbs have irregular past participles, just like the one you gave with "ver" ie "visto"

Romper - To break
Roto - Broken

It is the past participle of the verb. In Spanish may be -ado ( for infinitives ending in -ar) and -ido endings ( for -er and -ir infinitives)

Ex.

I have learned - He aprendido
You have seen - Has visto
He has eaten - Ha comido
I have loved - He amado
We have stopped - Hemos parado
