Saying What You Do:Present of -ar verbs
To talk aboyt things you do, use the present tense. To form the present tense of a regular verb that ends in -ar, drop the -ar and add these endings:
-o, -as, -a, -amos, -áis, --an
yo estudio nosotros(as) estudiamos
tú estudias vosotros(as) estudiáis
usted, él, ella estudia ustedes, ellos, ellas estudian

HOW TO CONJUGATE VERBS:

All verbs can be conjugated for example: Cantar

Cant ar <----the verb ar is in cantar
and Cant is the stem of the verb
-So the first thing you would do is drop the ar verb and keep the stem 'cant' to conjugate.

Questions:
Compare when to use ir or ar?-The category is determined by the last two letters of the infinative:
ir, ar, er
List some examples of -ir verbs?- abrir, partir, vivir, subir, y asistir. There are many.


Analyze when to use er?-You use the -er verb when the word you are conjugating ends with -er
