How to read Spanish verb conjugation tables?
Spanish teachers use a chart to help students learn how to conjugate verbs. The following are different views of the Spanish verb chart that you will find on Live Lingua Spanish. Use them as “tools” to learn the concept of verb conjugation. You will eventually need to learn each form of the verb and you will no longer need the chart.
In the table below you can see which "person" each one of the areas represents in a verb conjugation table.
• The "1st person" is when we talk about things from your (or a group you are a part of) perspective.
• The "2nd person" is when talking from the perspective of another person or another group of people.
• The "3rd person" perspective is of a person (or group of people) you are talking about.
|1st person singular||1st person plural|
|2nd person singular||2nd person plural|
|3rd person singular||3rd person plural|

|"I" form||"We" form|
|"You" (familiar) form||"You" (familiar) form in|
