Tomorrow you will be taking your Spanish Final. As we have practiced, discussed, and practiced time and time again - your final exam will be based on a dialogue that you will create using the vocabulary, phrases, and ideas from your notes. 

Your dialogue will be about 20 - 30 sentences long between two or three people. Scenario: It's their first time meeting in a restaurant and they are ordering food from a waiter. I will provide you with a key to help you along. 
- Food
- Date
- Time
- Conversations
- Colors

As a reminder - you will be able to bring flash cards with vocab and phrases (Spanish/English) - NOT FULL SENTENCES. You should also bring a pencil and a dictionary as well. 

AND REMEMBER -- DO NOT WORRY. YOU GOT THIS!!!

If you had not finished copying this chart and the rules for Verbs into your notebook, please be sure to do so.


Regular Verb Conjugations

All Spanish verbs end in –ar, -er, or –ir. This form is called the infinitive.

  • Hablar: to speak  

  • Comer: to eat   

  • Vivir: to live

Verbs are classified as verbs of the first, second or third conjugations according to the ending of the infinitive. What remains of the verb when the ending is removed is called the stem.

The sets of endings which are added to the stem or to the infinitive to denote person, number, tense, and mood are called conjugations.

The following are the Simple Tenses of the Indicative Mood.

1) Present

2) Imperfect

3) Preterite

4) Future

5) Conditional


The Present Tense

First Conjugation, -ar

The present tense expresses an uncompleted action or state and is formed by adding the endings to the stem of the infinitive. –o, -as, -a, -amos, -ais, -an
