Infinitives of verbs

Over the next few weeks we will start to see more grammar, starting of course with the regular -AR verbs. A regular verb is a verb that follows a set of rules and with these rules we can start to make the infinitive of a verb useful.

 

Can you remember what we said yesterday about infinitives? They tell us what a verb does without telling us who did it or when they did it. For example:

to eat – who eats? when do they eat?

 

Compare that to a conjugated verb which tells us who does it and when they do it;

I eat        –               I ate              –               I will eat

You eat   –             You are       –               You will eat

The above examples are conjugated because we know who is eating and when they are eating.

 

In Spanish as we now know the infinitives end in -AR, -ER and -IR, for example:

Hablar              Comer              Vivir

 

We will soon be learning how to conjugate these infinitives so we can say who is doing something and when (this part will come later).
