Spanish Regular Verbs in Present Indicative Tense

Verbs are words that indicate an action or emotion within a sentence. In Spanish verbs are divided into the following modes; indicative, conditional, imperative and subjunctive.
The present indicative tense is used to refer to actions that take place in the present.

Verbs are classified according to their endings:

- AR 
Hablar (To speak)
