English: Let’s see now the conjugation of the verbs with the ending –ar in the present tense. Let’s use the verb to speak for the example:

Spanish: Yo hablo, tú hablas, usted habla, él habla, ella habla, nosotros hablamos, vosotros habláis, ustedes hablan, ellos hablan, ellas hablan.
English: Usually the pronoun is omitted due to the fact that the verb ending indicates who is performing the action.
Spanish: Usualmente se omite el pronombre debido a que la terminación del verbo indica quién está ejecutando la acción.
