"Today, we are going to talk about regular verbs. Regular verbs are my favorite kind of verb.
Because they follow predictable conjugation patterns.
[deliver above line using a spooky voice as if you are looking into a crystal ball]
To conjugate a regular verb: just take the verb stem and add the ending that matches the subject. That's it!
Here, I'll show you what I mean. Let's conjugate the present tense of a couple regular verbs.
First, we need to identify the verb stem. It's easy!
Start with the infinitive form and simply drop the -en or -n.
And there you have it... the verb stem!
