Hi all,

I wonder if you could help me.

I am currently trying to learn Spanish verbs - with great difficulty - I usually learn all of my vocabulary on QUIZLET; however, I am finding it extremely challenging with the verbs - I am just finding them so hard to learn.

Does anybody recommend an easier way that I can learn them?

At the moment, I am not getting very far at all.

I would really appreciate any help that I can get.

Thank you and Kind Regards.

I'd try to learn all the ending sets for each tense for each type of verb ending on paper - AR/ER/IR and present/preterite/imperfect/future/conditional are the basics in I/you/he-she-it/we/you-plural/they. Perhaps make up a rhyme or write them out a lot of times. Eventually, it will just stick. Are you trying to supplement learning in school/college, or just for fun at home?

buy a dictionary and learn read the verb tables over and over again . It has to be done or you can't maintain a conversation.

I'm not familiar with Quizlet, but if you haven't tried it yet, give DuoLingo a go. It's free and fantastic.
What exactly are you finding tricky with the verbs? Just remembering the conjugations? I would be reluctant to recommend learning off tables of verbs as it doesn't help when it comes to fluency when speaking. You'll be caught up trying to remember and/or translate verbs you've memorised in table form. If you want to say in Spanish 'Every Tuesday she dances' you don't want to begin reciting 'bailo, bailas, baila...' until you find the conjugation you want. I'd recommend studying what the regular endings are for a very short time (they're easy to remember!), but then begin pretty soon thereafter practising forming sentences in context, not just rhyming off 'I cook, you cook, she cooks, we cook etc' in Spanish. Try finding a Spanish penpal, use DuoLingo as it's great for translations and reading etc.
