-AR verb conjugations:

In order to talk about activities, you need
to use verbs. Verbs express actions or states of being. In English and Spanish, the infinitive is the base form of the verb. In English, the infinitive is preceded by the word to: to study, to be. The infinitive in Spanish is
a one-word form and can be recognized by its endings: -ar, -er, or -ir.

En espanol, you have three types of verbs, all categorized by their endings: -ar/-er/-ir.
-AR: hablar, estudiar, caminar, jugar, cocinar.
-ER: correr, comer, barrer, hacer
-IR: escribir, dirigir, conseguir,
In Lección 2, we will learn the forms of regular -ar verbs. They are called regular because they will all follow the regular rules of conjugation.

From the Lección Una, we saw that we need subject pronouns in order to conjugate verbs en Español. As a refresher, I have listed these subject pronouns below.
Yo – I nosotros - we
Tú – You (familiar)
Él, ella, Ud. Ellos, ellas, Uds.
He, she, You (formal) They, You (formal)
In the next two slides, you will see how –AR verbs are conjugated and their endings as well as how these conjugations may be interpreted in English.
Keep in mind that there is not always a literal translation between two languages: every word in Spanish does not correspond to one word in English.

Examples of –AR conjugation :

Yo hablo I speak
Tú llamas you call
El, ella deletrea He, she spells
Ud. descansa You (formal) rest
Nostros necesitamos We need
Ellos, ellas envian They send
Uds. mandan You (formal) send

*Notice that only the –ar is dropped from the infinitive form and being replaced with the appropriate ending.
Notice that we are not changing the entire verb, as was the case with the verb SER. These –AR verbs are regular in nature, in that they all follow the same rules for conjugation and use the same endings when conjugating. Follow the endings on your conjugation chart located on both the Vistas (textbook) and GAView sites.
When using Gustar, we must use Indirect Object Pronouns: me, te, le, nos, os, les (the person to whom the item is pleasing to.
Gustar: to be pleasing to
The verb (gustar) must agree with the noun that generally follows it: i.e., me gusta el espanol. Using a singular form of gustar.
Me gustan los zapatos: Using gustar in its plural form with a plural noun following the verb.
We only use two forms of Gustar: gusta/gustan.
