Cómo Conjugar los Verbos Regulares de Inglés

Vamos a usar el verbo "to walk" (caminar). Cuando conjugas los verbos de inglés, no usa el "to". Cuando usas verbos en inglés, usualmente necesitas el pronombre.

Indicativo

Presente (Present)

En el tiempo presente, la tercera persona singular termina con un "s". Todas las otras personas no se cambian.

I/you/we/they walk

He/she walks

Pretérito (Past)

En el pretérito, los verbos terminan en un "ed".

Walked

Imperfecto (Imperfect)

Pon "used to" delante del verbo.

Used to walk

Futura (Future)

Pon "will" delante del verbo.

Will walk

Subjuntivo

Solo hay subjunctivo en el presente. Para formar el subjunctivo, quita el "s" al fin del verbo en tercera persona singular.

I recommend he drink the milk.

Continuo (Continuous/Progressive)

Para formar el presente y el pretérito, pon un formo de "to be" delante del gerundio. El gerundio termina con "ing".

Presente (Present)

I am walking

You/we/they are walking

He/she is walking

Pretérito (Past)

I/he/she was walking

We/you/they were walking

Futura (Future)

Para formar la futura, pon "will be" delante del gerundio.

Will be walking

Perfecto (Perfect)

Para formar el perfecto, pon un formo de "to have" delante del participio. El participio es el pretérito indicativo si es un verbo regular.

Presente (Present)

I/you/we/they have walked

He/she has walked

Pretérito/Pasado (Past)

Had walked

Futura (Future)

Will have walked

Perfecto continuo (Perfect progressive/perfect continuous)

Usa un formo de "to have", el participio de "to be", been, y el gerundio.

Presente (Present)

I/you/we/they have been walking

He/she has been walking

Pretérito/Pasado (Past)

Had been walking

Futura (Future)

Will have been walking

Imperativo (Imperative)

Afirmativo (Affirmative)

Para formar el imperativo afirmativo, no usa un pronombre. Usa el indicativo presente.

Walk

Negativo (Negative)

Para formar el negativo, pon "do not" (más formal) o "don't" (menos formal) delante del verbo.

Don't walk

Eso es todo! No hay el tiempo condicional. Si tienes una pregunta, escribe un comentario y voy a ayudarte.

The subjunctive does exist in English. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_subjunctive
It is just less noticeable.

Pronouns/antecedents are required except for the imperative.

English does not make a distinction between the preterite or imperfect in its conjugation.
However, there are ways of expressing the general meaning received when using the preterite and imperfect.

Generally, verbs conjugated in the preterite can simply be translated into the simple past. The imperfect can be express using "used to" or the past progressive.

I believe I noted that the pronouns are used except for in the imperative. However, I'll update it to make it more clear.

For the subjunctive, you are correct. Although the subjunctive does exist, many native speakers don't use it. In everyday life, I would definitely say, "It is necessary that he sees a doctor," as would most everyone I know. While it may not be perfect grammar, any person would definitely be understood if they used indicative instead of subjunctive. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. Also, my Spanish skills are not quite good enough to explain something like that. You might notice the discussion is formulaic. However, I did edit it according to your new information.

Thanks for the feedback! You learn something new every day! Have a lingot.

Excluding certain words such as "hope" and "expect" in English, the subjunctive is actually used more often then one would believe.

Thanks for your feedback. I have updated the discussion to include subjunctive. I believe subjunctive only exists in present. Am I correct?

I guess it never really occurred to me because when I thought about it, I was using words like think and doubt. In Spanish, these trigger subjunctive tense, but in English, they seem not to.

Dudo que viaje a Egypt.

I doubt he travels to Egypt.

Am I correct about that?

If anyone finds another mistake, I'd recommend that he or she comment so I can fix it like with this one. Thanks again! ¡Dos lingots para ti!
