There are 3 verbs families in Spanish. They are defined according to their ending: AR- ER- IR.

Today´s goal is to present you a brief account of these three families in order to set your Spanish base.

AR- CantAR (To sing)                                                                                              

Yo canto
Tú cantas
Él/ella/usted canta
Nosotros cantamos
Vosotros cantaís
Ellos/ellas/ustedes cantan

**In Mexico, unlike in Spain, the second person plural (vosotros) is never used. Indeed, it is a trademark of Latin America to respectfully address others with the use of the third singular person "usted" (when referring to one individual) and of the third plural person "ustedes" (when referring to a large group).**

ER- BebER (To drink)

Yo bebo
Tú bebes
Él/ella/usted bebe
Nosotros bebemos
Vosotors bebeís
Ellos/ellas/ustedes beben

IR- VivIR (to live)

Yo vivo
Tú vives
Él/ella/usted vive
Nosotros vivimos
Vosotros vivís
Ellos/ellas/ustedes viven

Unlike verb conjugation in English, Spanish grammar requires a lot of practice and patience. Indeed, the verb presented earlier are regular verbs. In the Spanish language you will find around 12 300 verbs including 63 irregular ones. Obviously, the 63 irregular verbs are probably the one you will use the most!
