It's all the same verb, escribir (to write) Those are just conjugations of the verb to match the people or persons completing the action. Of course the ones you listed are in the present tense and should be conjugated like this:

yo (I) escribo tu (you) ecribes el/ella/usted (him/her/you) escribe ellos/ellas/ustedes (them or they) escriben nosotros (we) escribimos

I hope I helped

Escribir (to write)

Yo escribo

Tú escribes

Usted/Él/ella escribe

Nosotros escribimos

Ustedes escriben

Ellos escriben

You just have to memorize with conjugation matches with each pronoun, then, when there's no pronoun, you can infer of who they're talking about.

In this case, "escribir" is a regular verb; other regular verbs that end with -ir are: dormir (to sleep), mentir (to lie) and cubrir (to cover). I will recommend you to write down the conjugations of the new verbs you encounter, after some time, they will come easily to your head.

Verb conjugations are one of the hardest things about learning Spanish. Spend a little time every day looking up different formations, as it only gets harder with the various tenses and irregular verbs out there.

If you click on the "tips and notes" feature in the top right corner of the Verb: Present 1 badge, it lists the conjugation notes.

There are also other tips and notes in most sections to help with the breakdown of the lesson that is not memorization.

Happy learning!
