What is a verb?

 

  A verb indicates action. All the verbs we are learning end in –ar. Verbs also have stems, which have been underlined.

 

  necesitar    pagar  hablar

  comprar  llevar

    To buy  To take

The subject pronouns: Review

 

I  _________

 

  You (inf.)  _________

 

  He  _________

  You (form.)  _________

For every pronoun, we must take –ar off of the verb and add the following:

 

Yo  -o

 

  Tú    -as

 

  él    -a

  Ella  -a

  Usted    -a

Putting it together: The steps

 

1.Take a verb and chop off the last two letters.

2. Add the ending on the end to show who or what is doing the verb.

Tú mir+as = Tú miras  You look.
