20 Essential Spanish -AR Verbs

Hola a todos,

Firstly, lo siento for my absence last martes. Do you ever sometimes completely lose track of tiempo? That’s what happened to yours truly. Martes came and left, and it wasn’t until miercoles arrived that I even realised I hadn’t posted a Learn Spanish post, at all!

Let’s call it schools holidays!

Hoy, we’re going to be looking at some essential -AR Spanish verbs and how you form them.

For those that don’t know, a verb, or un verbo, is used to describe an action, state or an occurrence. They essentially form the main part of a sentence. So, let’s boost those conversation skills and get you to know some of the most essential -AR regular verbos that you’ll need to speak español.

Here’s my favourite thing about Spanish, they tend to follow a pattern.

-ar verbs (Regular)

1. Usar (to use)


yo uso  (I use)
tú usas (You use)
usted / él / ella usa (You polite, he, she uses)
nosotros / nosotras usamos (We use)
vosotros / vosotras usáis (You plural use)
ustedes/ ellos / ellas usan (You plural polite, they use)
