How do you conjugate -AR verbs?
When you come upon subjects (nosotros, vosotros, yo, tú, etc.) with an -Ar verb, you have to drop the -AR from the verb and add the subject ending

Yo -AR = O
Nosotros -AR = AMOS
Tú -AR = AS
Vosotros -AR = AÍS
Usted -AR = A
Ustedes -AR = AN
Él / Ella -AR = A
Ellos / Ellas -AR = AN
Example :
- Yo mucho bail ar
-You would drop the AR and add an O since the subject is Yo
-So the final sentence would be:

-Yo mucho bailo
