Present Tense in Spanish

Spanish Grammar Rules: El Presente Indicativo


In Spanish, verbs are classified into three types.

  • Verbs ending in -AR,
  • Verbs ending in -ER
  • Verbs ending in -IR.

Spanish Regular Verbs in Present Tense

With regular verbs in Spanish, only the ending part of that verb (the -ar, -er or -ir part) changes depending on who does the action. However, unlike English, there is a different ending for each subject (pronoun).

To begin, we will show you how to conjugate the verb in the present tense:

(Notice how the part of the verb in red is the part that changes)

Before you continue reading, make sure you know about Subject Pronouns in Spanish (yo, tú, él etc.).

If you have the verb Hablar (to speak) and you want to say "I speak". You just remove the last two letters of the verb (in this case remove the -ar) and add the letter -O to the end to create the conjugated verb Hablo which means "I speak".

Another example: if you want to say "They eat", we take the original verb, in this case Comer, we remove the ending (-er) and then add -EN to the end (because ellos = they). We now have Comen (they eat).

You will notice that certain verb endings are repeated. For example for YO (I) we take off the ending for all regular verbs and add the -O to the root (main part) of the verb.

Also see how the only difference between -ER verbs and -IR verb endings is when we use nosotros (we) and vosotros (you/plural/informal).

The subject pronoun (yo, tú, nosotros etc.) is often omitted before the verb since we normally know who the subject (the person doing the action) is because of the verb's ending.

For example: If you say "Hablamos español" (we speak Spanish). You don't need to put the pronoun nosotros before the verb because we know that when we say hablamos, it refers to nosotros (we). So often you will hear or just read "Hablamos español" without the pronoun nosotros.


Spanish Irregular Verbs in Present Tense

The following verbs are only irregular in the first person (singular). The rest of the conjugations are as normal (see regular verbs above).

I.- First Person Verbs ending in -Y

The following verbs are a part of this group: Estar (to be) - Dar (to give)

SubjectEstar
Yo estoy
estás
Él está
Ella está
Usted está
Nosotros / Nosotras estamos
Vosotros / Vosotras estáis
Ellos / Ellas están
Ustedes están
  • Yo estoy feliz. (I am happy)
  • Yo estoy en mi casa. (I'm at home)
  • Yo doy propinas (I give tips).

II.- First Person Verbs ending in -GO

The following verbs are a part of this group: Hacer (to do) - Poner (to put) - Salir (to go out) - Valer (to cost/be worth)

SubjectHacer
Yo hago
haces
Él hace

  • Yo hago mis tareas (I do my homework).
  • Yo pongo la leche en el refrigerador.
  • Yo salgo con mis amigos. (I go out with my friends)
  • Yo valgo mucho (I'm worth it)

III.- First Person Verbs ending in -ZCO

Verbs that end in -cir and -cer change to -zco in first person. The following verbs are a part of this group: Conducir (to drive) - Conocer (to know) - Traducir (to translate)


SubjectConducir
Yo conduzco
conduces
Él conduce

Remember these verbs are only irregular in the first person (singular), the rest of the verb has the same rules as regular present tense conjugations.


Spanish Verbs that have Stem Changes

There are four types of verbs where the stem of the verb is irregular and changes. In the present tense these are verbs that change their stem from O to UE, from U to UE, E to IE, and E to I. Note that this stem change does not happen when the verb is for nosotros o vosotros (these maintain the original stem of the verb).

I.- Stem changes from O to UE

The letter "O" in the stem of the infinitive verb changes to "UE" in the conjugations.

SubjectAlmorzar
Yo Almuerzo
Almuerzas
Él Almuerza
Ella Almuerza
Usted Almuerza
Nosotros / Nosotras Almorzamos
Vosotros / Vosotras Almorzáis
Ellos / Ellas Almuerzan
Ustedes Almuerzan
  • Yo almuerzo con mis amigos. (I have lunch with my friends)
  • Tú almuerzas todos los días en un restaurante. (You have lunch in a restaurant every day)
  • Ellos almuerzan comida chilena. (They have Chilean food for lunch)

II.- Stem changes from E to IE

The letter "E" in the stem of the infinitive verb changes to "IE" in the conjugations.

SubjectSentir
Yo siento
sientes
Él siente
Ella siente
Usted siente
Nosotros / Nosotras sentimos
Vosotros / Vosotras sentís
Ellos / Ellas sienten
Ustedes sienten
  • Ellos sienten frío. (She feels cold)
  • Tú sientes un dolor de cabeza. (You have a headache)
  • Él siente una presencia. (He feels a presence)

III.- Stem changes from E to I

The letter "E" in the stem of the infinitive verb changes to "I" in the conjugations.

SubjectPedir
Yo pido
pides
Él pide
Ella pide
Usted pide
Nosotros / Nosotras pedimos
Vosotros / Vosotras pedís
Ellos / Ellas piden
Ustedes piden
  • Yo pido una bebida. (I ask for a drink)
  • Usted pide un vaso de agua. (You ask for a glass of water)
  • El animador pide un aplauso para el artista. (The presenter asks for applause for the artist)

IV.- Stem changes from U to UE

The letter "U" in the stem of the infinitive verb changes to "UE" in the conjugations. Note that the verb Jugar is the only verb that is irregular in this way.

SubjectJugar
Yo juego
juegas
Él juega
Ella juega
Usted juega
Nosotros / Nosotras jugamos
Vosotros / Vosotras jugáis
Ellos / Ellas juegan
Ustedes juegan

Present tense -AR verbs

In Spanish, verbs are divided into three categories for all tenses: -ar verbs, -er verbs, and -ir verbs. The -ar, -er, and -ir refer to the unconjugated infinitive ending of the verb. Examples of each are hablar(to speak), comer(to eat), and vivir(to live). Verbs are classified in this manner because each type has its own conjugation pattern. In this display, -ar present tense verb conjugations are the focus.

Singular

yo

habl-

+ o

habl-

+ as

usted

habl-

+ a

él / ella

habl-

+ a

EXAMPLES:

Yo hablo español.
Él habla francés.

Plural

nosotros / nosotras

habl-

+ amos

vosotros / vosotras

habl-

+ áis

ustedes

habl-

+ an

ellos / ellas

habl-

+ an

EXAMPLES:

Nosotros hablamos inglés.
Ellos hablan alemán.

In the table above hablar is divided by its stem habl- and its conjugation ending, which changes with the subject. To conjugate any regular -ar verb, remove the -ar to find the verb stem, then add the proper ending.

Attention:
The verb conjugations for Ud., él, and ella are the same. Also, Uds., ellos, and ellas have the same conjugation ending. This is true for all verbs in all tenses.

Attention:
The Spanish present tense is equivalent to three English forms.

Yo hablo español.
I speak Spanish.
I am speaking Spanish.
I do speak Spanish.

Attention:
The verb endings indicate who is doing the action, so often the subject pronouns are omitted. However, they can be used at any time, especially for emphasis or clarification.

Trabajo mañana.
I work tomorrow.

&#;Trabaja ella también?
Does she also work?

Spanish Present Tense

The present tense is the most frequently used tense in Spanish and functions quite similarly to the English present tense. The present tense is employed to express many things; mainly, it is used to describe something that is happening either right now (the train is leaving) or in the near future (the train leaves in an hour), to express a general truth (the train is comfortable) or to describe a habitual action (I take the train to work every week).

It is also important to keep in mind that in English there are more ways to express an action in the present than in Spanish. For example:

I drink.
I am drinking.
I do drink.
Yo bebo.

Spanish Present Tense: -ar, -er and -ir verbs

As we covered in the section on Spanish verbs, all Spanish verbs end in one of the following ways:

  • -ar (examples: amar, asar, borrar, estudiar, hablar, jugar, saltar, tomar)
  • -er (beber, comer, comprender, leer, temer, vender)
  • -ir (mentir, pedir, sentir, subir, vivir)

Regular verbs (we'll leave the irregular verbs for later) follow the same pattern as other verbs with which they share endings. The root of the verb (the part up until the -ar, -er or -ir) stays the same, while the ending is replaced according to the subject.

SPANISH PRESENT TENSE: VERBS ENDING IN -AR

The root for SALTAR is "salt-" and the root for AMAR is "am-". See how the endings change:

Subject-AR verb endings SALTAR (to jump)
AMAR (to love)
yo (I) -osalto (I jump)
amo (I love)

Spanish Verbs that End in -ar

Spanish Verbs

All Spanish verbs end in either -ar, -er, or -ir. Each of these verb categories has specific rules governing how they change to express layers of crucial information about the situation. Verbs that end in -ar are the most common, so memorizing their conjugations are a great place to start.

How Verbs Change

The form of a verb changes to show who perpetrated the action (“the person”) and when it occurred (“the tense”). Spanish uses one extra “person” category that corresponds to addressing “you all / you guys” in English. For more on the different person categories and personal pronouns in Spanish, see this guide.

Though native speakers may not notice it, English verbs also change depending on who performed the action and when it occurred. Most verbs only change in the third person singular (see below) in English, but all verbs change to distinguish when something occurs.

Person (Singular)Present tensePast tense
First personI walkI walked
Second personYou walkYou walked
Third personHe/She walksHe/She walked

In most cases (apart from irregular verbs), the English past tense is formed by adding -ed to the word. Both English and Spanish have a lot of irregular verbs which simply need to be memorized, but learning the rule for regular verbs makes conjugation much easier.

Being exposed to verbs in context (rather than just in a chart) is also crucial to becoming comfortable using them – not to mention it’s more fun! Use Lingvist’s Spanish course to see verbs in context, as well as look over grammar tips to clarify concepts explicitly as needed.

To Infinitivo and Beyond

The infinitive (infinitivo) form of a verb is its most basic form. You can spot them easily in Spanish because they retain their original ending of -ar, -ir, or -er. The equivalent meaning in English is the same as “to [verb],” so “amar” translates to “to love.”

Except when stacking two verbs together (“I [like] [to help]” / “Me [gusta] [ayudar]”), the infinitive form needs to change to express the who and when. This is where conjugation comes in.

For regular verbs, the infinitive lends its stem to its conjugated forms in a predictable way. The stem, or raíz (literally “root” in Spanish), is the part that occurs before the -ar, -ir, or -er.

Simply put, to conjugate an -ar verb, drop the -ar and add the appropriate ending according to the person and tense.

For example, in the present tense you add -o, -as, -a, -amos, -áis, or -an to the remaining stem after removing -ar. You’ll see an exception to this rule in the simple future, where you only need to add the ending to the intact infinitive.

Conjugation Rules for Regular -ar Verbs

Simple Present Tense Endings

To talk about something being done presently, drop the -ar and add one of these endings. English often uses the present continuous (example below with hablar) instead of the simple present, so you’ll end up using the simple present a lot more often in Spanish than you do in English. In English, the simple present often has an implied regularity or habitual connotation to it. This is not the case with the Spanish simple present.

I am talking (pres. cont.) / I talk (simple present)

=

Yo hablo (simple present)

PersonPresent Ending
yo-o
-as
él/ella/Ud.-a
nosotros-amos
vosotros-áis
ellos/ellas/Uds.-an

Ex: Hablar –> Habl -ar (to talk/ speak)

yo hablonosotros hablamos
tú hablasvosotros habláis
él, ella, Ud. hablaellos, ellas, Uds. hablan

Imperfect Endings

Use the imperfect (pretérito imperfecto) to talk about actions that were habitual in the past or lacked a defined end, e.g., “Trabajaba todos los días, hasta que me lesioné el pie.”

PersonImperfect Ending
yo-aba
-abas
él/ella/Ud.-aba
nosotros-ábamos
vosotros-abais
ellos/ellas/Uds.-aban

Ex: Hablar –> Habl -ar (to talk/speak)

yo hablabanosotros hablábamos
tú hablabasvosotros hablabais
él, ella, Ud. hablabaellos, ellas, Uds. hablaban

Preterite Tense Endings

The preterite refers to an action that has been completed in the past. In English this is what we generally think of when we think of past tense, as in the sentence “I opened the box.” For more on how to use the Spanish preterite, see this guide.

PersonPreterite Ending
yo
-aste
él/ella/Ud.
nosotros-amos
vosotros-asteis
ellos/ellas/Uds.-aron

Ex: Hablar –> Habl -ar (to talk/ speak)

yo hablénosotros hablamos
tú hablastevosotros hablasteis
él, ella, Ud. hablóellos, ellas, Uds. hablaron

Simple Future Tense Endings

For the future tense you simply add the ending to the full infinitive (Note that these endings are the same for all three categories of verbs).

yo
-ás
él/ella/Ud.
nosotros-emos
vosotros-éis
ellos/ellas/Uds.-án

Ex: Hablar + ending (to talk/speak)

yo hablarénosotros hablaremos
tú hablarásvosotros hablaréis
él, ella, Ud. hablaráellos, ellas, Uds. hablarán

Common Irregular -ar Verbs

Many of the most common -ar verbs are irregular. These conjugations do not follow the patterns listed above, though there are some patterns in the ways that they differ, which you can read more about here. Be aware that the above conjugations won’t apply to these verbs. A few examples of common irregular verbs are:

  1. Estar (to be – for states of being)
  2. Dar (to give)
  3. Llegar (to arrive/reach)
  4. Encontrar (to find/encounter)
  5. Pensar (to think)

For a list of the most common -ar verbs and their conjugations, click here. Irregular verbs are highlighted in red in this list. For an example of how an irregular verb can differ, see the conjugation chart for the verb estar below.

States of “Being” in Spanish: Estar vs. Ser

Estar, one of the most common verbs in Spanish, means “to be.” Spanish has two verbs that correlate to the translation of “to be” in English: estar and ser. Estar is used to talk about temporary states of being, such as health or locations. Ser is used to describe more permanent attributes, such as characteristics of a person (tall/short), occupations, or where someone is from.

Estar examples:

  1. Yo estoy feliz (I am happy).
  2. El perro está en la playa (The dog is at the beach).
  3. Las chicas están ocupadas (The girls are busy).

Ser examples:

  1. eres alto (You are tall).
  2. Yo soy jardinera (I am a gardener).
  3. Él es de Perú (He is from Peru).

Being able to judge which verb is appropriate will come with more exposure to these verbs in context, which is why it’s important to expose yourself to full sentences or longer texts in Spanish whenever possible. See this page for how to use ser and estar in descriptions, and this guide on specific uses.

Note that all forms of estar begin with “est-”.

Simple present tense is irregular in all forms except nosotros and vosotros:

yo estoynosotros estamos
estásvosotros estáis
él, ella, Ud. estáellos, ellas, Uds. están

Imperfect tense is only irregular in vosotros:

yo estabanosotros estábamos
tú estabasvosotros estábais
él, ella, Ud. estabaellos, ellas, Uds. estaban

Preterite tense requires a stem change from est- to estu-:

yo estuvenosotros estuvimos
estuvistevosotros estuvisteis
él, ella, Ud. estuvoellos, ellas, Uds. estuvieron

Simple future tense is not irregular:

yo estarénosotros estaremos
tú estarásvosotros estaréis
él, ella, Ud. estaráellos, ellas, Uds. estarán

[-AR] Verb Endings


Infinitive verbs are verbs that are unchanged. They are in their most basic form, and can be adapted in many different ways. (An infinite number of ways, so to speak.)

Infinitive verbs in Spanish will always end with &#;AR, &#;ER, or &#;IR.

Infinitive verbs, in English, always mean to do … (action). For example: to run, to read, to speak, to live, to eat, to see, to hear, to work, to study …

-AR verbs are all infinitive verbs that end with the letters &#;AR. Besides the &#;AR ending, there really is no kind of pattern to why certain verbs are &#;AR verbs.

Spanish: Conjugating AR verbs - Present Tense

Spanish Verb Conjugation: Helpful Charts & Tips

A big part of learning to speak Spanish is an understanding of basic grammar rules &#; and one of the first things you&#;ll need to know is Spanish verb conjugation.

Let’s start with the most important question: why is it important to learn conjugation? Conjugation enables us to use verbs to describe real live situations and events.

Without knowing how to conjugate verbs we would not be able to form coherent sentences. Just like in English, conjugating verbs (along with other Spanish grammar basics) is essential to learning the language.

Even though most native English-speakers don’t know this, we conjugate verbs all the time in English. Let’s use the example of the verb to watch in English. To conjugate it, we say:

  • I watch
  • You watch
  • He/she watches
  • We watch
  • They watch

As you can see, verb conjugation in English is quite simple. Almost all English verbs only have two variants when conjugating (i.e. watch vs. watches), with the exception of the verb to be which has three variants:

  • I am
  • You are
  • He is
  • We are
  • They are

How to Conjugate Spanish Verbs

Spanish, on the other hand, always conjugates verbs into five variants. Let’s use the same example of the verb to watch in Spanish, which is mirar.

  • Yo miro
  • Tú miras
  • Él/Ella/Usted mira
  • Nosotros miramos
  • Ellas/Ellos/Ustedes miran

Again, as you can see, Spanish breaks down verbs into five different ending variants, which can feel overwhelming and confusing. Learning how it works can appear complicated at first, but luckily you can use the formula below that makes it so easy, it will become second nature.

Start with the following three steps to conjugate Spanish verbs:How to Conjugate Spanish Verbs

 

How to Conjugate -ar Verbs in Spanish

Let’s take mirar (to watch), for example:

  • If you are referring to ‘yo’ or ‘I,’ add the letter ‘o’ to end the conjugated verb, forming miro.
  • If you are referring to ‘tú’ or ‘you,’ use the ending ‘as,’ to form miras.
  • If you are referring to ‘él’ or ‘ella” or ‘he or she,’ use the ending ‘a,’ to form mira.
  • If you are referring to ‘nosotros’ or ‘we,’ use the ending ‘amos’ to form miramos.
  • If you are referring to ‘ellos’ or ‘they,’ use the ending ‘an,’ to form miran.

How to Conjugate -er Verbs in Spanish

Let’s take comer (to eat), for example:

  • ‘Yo’ stays the same here, with the ‘o’ ending, just like -ar verbs, to form como.
  • If you are referring to ‘tú’ or ‘you,’ use the ending ‘es,’ to form comes.
  • If you are referring to ‘él’ or ‘ella” or ‘he or she,’ use the ending ‘e,’ to form come.
  • If you are referring to ‘nosotros’ or ‘we,’ use the ending ‘emos,’ to form comemos.
  • If you are referring to ‘ellos’ or ‘they,’ use the ending ‘en,’ to form comen.

How to Conjugate -ir Verbs in Spanish

  • These verbs follow the same rules as with -er verbs, except that in the nosotros (we) form, the ending becomes -imos instead of -emos.

Here’s a great Spanish verb conjugation chart from Spanishnet that summarizes these rules:

spanish verb conjugation chart

Spanish Conjugation Chart for More Practice

Use a simple chart like the one below, and practice conjugating each of the verbs.

Spanish conjugation chart

It seems easy, right? The formula is straightforward but it does get a little tricky when the verbs are “stem-changers” or irregular, which a Spanish tutor can help you understand in more detail. Additionally, conjugation in Spanish varies significantly when the tense changes to past or future.

What About Vosotros?

As you&#;re working on your Spanish conjugation practice, you may notice that some charts have a space for vosotros conjugation, while others don&#;t. Spain is the only Spanish-speaking country that actually breaks down verbs into six variants, not five, which commonly isn’t taught in Spanish classes in the United States. Here, Spain makes a distinction between “they” and “you all,” which is used interchangeably in all other Spanish-speaking countries, as speakers use contextual cues to decipher the difference.
