I don’t know how to handle this Spanish question and need guidance.
Read the section in the book on Present Tense –AR verbs. Then write 5 sentences (in English) explaining the differences between verb conjugation in English and in Spanish. Also write 3 sample sentences in Spanish with explanations of why the verbs are conjugated in Spanish that way. Read 2 other students posts and comment on how they understood it differently or the same as you. Post both to discussion board and to dropbox. Use PRESENT TENSE ONLY.
Modelo para ejemplos:
Teresa cantalas mañanitas para el cumpleaños.
Ricardo y José buscan un paraguas.

After reading the book and watching videos a conjugated verb are verbs which are changed to be able to communicate with one or more person, number, gender, mood. The difference between both is that English you can use simple present or present progressive in Spanish you must use the simple present. Spanish verbs ending in AR drop the infinitive ending and add a personal ending to the stem in Spanish infinitives end in ar,er or ir
Ella Trabaja por la noche
Manía Ella trabaja por la noche
María esta llorando por su mama
Mi hermana regresar a la casa
Voy a bailar con mi esposa
Voy a contestar tu teléfono
Voy a comprar un teléfono nuevo
And a response to this:
The differences in verb conjugation between English and Spanish are relatively easy to understand. When conjugating a verb in Spanish, the verbs ending will change to match who is doing the action. In Spanish, “cantar” would become “Yo canto”. When we conjugate a verb in English, we’re taking away the word before the verb and replacing it with who is doing the action, so “to sing” becomes “I sing” but we do not change the spelling of the verb except when we use “he” or “she”.
In Spanish, there is an informal and a formal way of addressing “You”. This affects how we would spell the ending of the verb. English does not establish a difference in formality when using “you.” In Spanish, sometimes you do not need the put the noun in the sentence, “I, you, we” because the changed spelling of the verb identifies who is completing the action. This is not true for English as you have to always state who is completing the action. If you said “dream a dream”, you don’t know who is doing the dreaming.
Yo quiero bailo. I want to dance. – The verb is conjugated this way when you are speaking about yourself (Yo), the ending of the verb ends with “o”.
Tú quieres bailas. You want to dance. – The verb is conjugated this way when you are speaking to someone directly, “you”, the verb ends in “as.”
Ella quiere baila. She wants to dance. – The verb is conjugated this way when you are saying “he or she” before the action. The verb ends in “a”.
