There is a lot of tenses of verbs you should master, but here i give you the trick to master the present tense. It depends on the conjugation of the verb, and the person and the number of the subject. In spanish we have 3 conjugations: 1st (verbs ended with -ar), 2nd (verbs ended with -er) and 3rd (verbs ended with -ir). I mean the infinitive form of the verbs. You must anyway extract the root of the verb and add the suitable suffix. Examples: 1st conjugation infinitive form = amar yo amo (am-o) = i love = 我爱 tú amas (am-as) = you love = 你爱 él/ella/ello ama (am-a) = he/she/it loves = (他/她/它)爱 nosotros amamos (am-amos) = we love = 我们爱 vosotros amáis (am-áis) = you love= 你们爱 ellos/ellas aman (am-an) = they love = (他/她/它)们爱 2nd conjugation infinitive form = comer yo como (com-o) = i eat = 我吃 tú comes (com-es) = you eat = 你吃 él/ella/ello come (com-e) = he/she/it eats = (他/她/它)吃 nosotros comemos (com-emos) = we eat = 我们吃 vosotros coméis (com-éis) = you eat= 你们吃 ellos/ellas comen (com-en) = they eat = (他/她/它)们吃 3rd conjugation infinitive form = vivir yo vivo (viv-o) = i live = 我住 tú vives (viv-es) = you live = 你住 él/ella/ello vive (viv-e) = he/she/it lives = (他/她/它)住 nosotros vivimos (viv-imos) = we live = 我们住 vosotros vivís (viv-ís) = you live = 你们住 ellos/ellas viven (viv-en) = they live = (他/她/它)们住 Finally, i would say that these are regular verbs. There are some irregular verbs that have different conjugation because their root changes. But that is for the future, i think you should first master the regular conjugations. See you soon

Hello Mike. It's a very long answer. Maybe you could read it here: Do you have any doubts about this specific conjugation?
