Regular er Verbs Conjugation Method

There is a three-step method that will make conjugating regular Spanish er verbs very easy for you.

In order to conjugate verbs that end with -er in the present tense one must:

  1. Find the infinitive (full verb)
  2. Cut off the -er
  3. Add the new ending (o, es, e, emos, éis, en)

In the conjugation table above you can see the verb comer which means to “to eat” in English.

We will take this verb and conjugate it in the “yo” form using the three-step method.

  1. comer

The full verb of “to eat” is comer in Spanish.

  1. com

Once you cut of the er ending all that is left is com.

  1. como

When we add the new ending o, the final conjugated form will be como.

So when you wish to say “I eat” in Spanish you get:

Yo como
