Use Spanish AR Verbs

Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng, Anonymous

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is part of a series of videos on the Spanish language. In this video, we are going to show you how to use Spanish verbs ending in "AR". In Spanish, verbs end in either "AR", "ER", or "IR". This is a simple guide to conjugating regular "AR" verbs in the present tense. There are irregular verbs, and we'll demonstrate how to conjugate a few of them individually.

    The following are some sentence examples.
    The first is, "¿Hablas Español?" That means, "Do you speak Spanish?" We've added "-as" on the end, and that means You, so "¿Hablas Espanol?" means "Do you speak Spanish?"

    We have the verb, and we've added "-an" on the end, and that means "They".
