Spanish Present Tense - Regular -ar Verbs   By Ron Slone

Spanish Grammar Present Indicative Regular -ar Verbs
Overview

Regular verbs follow predictable patterns. Let's consider the present tense of a regular "ar" verb. To determine the correct forms of a verb, we start with its infinitive form. The infinitive form of the verb meaning (to walk) in Spanish is caminar.

Take off the -ar ending:
caminar - ar = camin

Now we add on one of the present tense endings:

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

camin + (ending) --> camino, caminas, camina, caminamos, caminan

Let's look at some example sentences using the regular "ar" verb, caminar:

Yo camino al restaurante para cenar.
I'm walking to the restaurant to have dinner.

El camina varias veces al dia.
He walks several times a day.

Nosotros también caminamos.
