    We can conjugate regular "er" verbs in the present tense with this simple guide.
    To conjugate any regular "er" verb in the present tense, take out the "er" from the end of the word and add the endings below this paragraph. In this video, we are going to use "correr" as an example. "Correr" means "to run". There is "er" at the end of "correr". We are going to take off the "er" ending and replace it with other endings. There are endings for "I", "you", "he", "she", "we", "you (plural)", and "they". They are different verb endings for the situations below:
    • corro: I run;
      if we take off "e" and and "o" at the end, then it means "I run";
    • corres: you run (informal);
      we are taking off "er" and replacing it with "es";
    • corre: he or she runs; you run (formal);
      we are taking off "er" and putting in "e" at the end.
    • corremos: we run;
      we are taking off "er" and putting in "emos". That means "we run";
    • corréis: you (plural) run;
      we are taking off "er" and putting in "éis" at the end.
    • corren: they run (also "you run" (plural, formal));
      we are taking off "er" and putting in "en".

    Here are some sentence examples.
    • "Corro cada mañana" is "I run every morning".
      The verb "correr" is conjugated. The "er" ending was taken out. There is "o" at the end. This means "I run".
    • "Él corre muy lento" is "He runs very slowly".
      The verb "correr" is conjugated. The "er" ending was taken out. There is "e" at the end. This means "He runs".

    Now, we can try to conjugate the verb.
    Here are some "er" verbs:
    • comer: to eat;
    • beber: to drink.
      So, as the verbs above are all "er" verbs, they all follow the same rules. The endings from step 3 are same for every "er" verb. Any regular verb that ends with "er" has the same endings and the same formula. Take off the "er" and add one of the endings.
