Lesson 5: The present tense in -er 1
Some examples of verbs ending in -er:
In the present tense, we replace the ending -er by a different ending, depending on the person who is performing the action.
|Replace -er with||Ending||Example|
|First person (I)||-o||(yo) como|
|Second person (you)||-es||(tú) comes, (usted) come|
|Third person (he, she)||-e||(él) come, (ella) come|
he eats, she eats
Note that the polite form usted uses the third instead of the second person conjugation.
