Transcript of Regular AR verbs / Gustar

AR verbs Infinitive - the base form of a verb,
meaning "to do something" In English, the infinitive is preceded by the word "to".

to study
to take
to eat
to talk

In Spanish, the infinitive is only one word. You can recognize an infinitive by its ending. It will either be:
-ar hablar
-er comer
-ir escribir

stem- habl cantar cant caminar camin You need to know this because it will help you to correctly conjugate the verb.

You eat. (conjugated form)
