LA PRIMA CONIUGAZIONE / PRESENTE INDICATIVO
In Italian there are three conjugations, or groups of verbs. The first group is made up of verbs that end in –ARE and are conjugated like PRESENTARE.
In Italian verb forms change according to person (first, second or third) and number (singular or plural.) There are six forms; three for singular and three for plural. A different ending is added to the verb stem for each form.
The verbs ESSERE (to be) and ANDARE (to go) are irregular. They do not follow a pattern and must be memorized.
