Okay, so I'm still on the basics level. And I tend to get escribe, escribes, escribo, and escribimos all confused and mixed up. I don't understand which is feminine and such.

Yo escribo - I write. El escribe - he writes. Ella escribe - she writes. Tu escribes- you write. Nosotros(as) escribimos - we write. Ellos(as) escriben - they write. Usted escribe - you write (You say it when that person is older and you want to show respect)

Good question! There isn't masculine and feminine with verbs. Gender only matters with nouns and words modifying nouns like adjectives. Verbs have 5 or 6 forms depending on where you're from. So, the "yo" form always ends in "o" even if you're a girl. Also, the he/she form of escribir always ends in "e" even when the person is a boy.

Escribe, escribes, escribo, and escribimos are all versions of the same word. Escribe: he writes Escribes: you write Escribo: I write Escribimos: they write
