                    Regular Present Indicative Tense Verbs                    

   Spanish infinitives are conjugated by dropping the ending (-ar, -er, -ir) and adding a new ending, thus creating a new word.
   The ending identifies 1) the tense - when the action of the verb is taking place; and 2) the person - who is performing the action of the verb.

   The following charts show the verb “endings” for all regular verbs in the Present Indicative Tense.
   Remember:  the verb chart is only a tool to use while one is learning the language.  In other words, one must eventually forget the verb chart and it must become second nature.  

   Examples:  Yo hablo.  I speak.   I do speak.  I am speaking.

                      Yo hablo enfrente de la clase los viernes. 
I speak in front of the class on Fridays.

     The Present Indicative Tense is used to talk about what is occurring in the “general” present time frame.  It is usually not used when talking about something that is actually in progress at the time you are talking about it; for that we use the Present Progressive construction.
