Small part of the explanation from video:
English: Let’s see the regular verbs ending on –er and -ir
Spanish: Veamos los verbos regulares terminados en –er e –ir
English: The verbs ending in –er, like “to eat” are conjugated the following way in the present tense: I eat, you eat, you eat, he eats, she eats, we eat, you eat, you eat, they eat, they eat.
Spanish: Los verbos con la terminación –er, como “comer” se conjugan de la siguiente forma en el tiempo presente: yo como, tú comes, usted come, él come, ella come, nosotros comemos, vosotros coméis, ustedes comen, ellos comen, ellas comen.
English: Usually, we omit the personal pronoun due to the fact that the verb ending indicates who is performing the action.
Spanish: Usualmente, omitimos el pronombre personal debido a que la terminación del verbo indica quién está ejecutando la acción.
English: However, the forms of the third person in singular and plural can be ambiguous, and sometimes it’s necessary to use the pronouns “usted”, “él”, “ella”, “ustedes”, “ellos”, “ellas”.
Spanish: Sin embargo, las formas de la tercera persona del singular y del plural pueden ser ambiguas y a veces es necesario usar los pronombres “usted”, “él”, “ella”, “ustedes”, “ellos”, “ellas”.
English: Let’s see the example with the verb “to drink”: I drink, you drink, we drink, you drink, but you drink, he drinks, she drinks, likewise, you drink, they drink, they drink.
Spanish: Veamos el ejemplo con el verbo “beber”: bebo, bebes, bebemos, bebéis, pero, usted bebe, él bebe, ella bebe’ igualmente, ustedes beben, ellos beben, ellas beben.
English: Other verbs that have the same ending are:
Spanish: Otros verbos que llevan la misma conjugación son:

Spanish: Leer: leo, lees, lee, leemos, leéis, leen

English: The verbs ending on –ir , like “to live”, are conjugated the following way in the present tense: I live, you live, you live, he lives, she lives, we live, you live, you live, they live, they live.
Spanish: Los verbos con las terminaciones –ir, como “vivir” se conjugan de la siguiente forma en el tiempo presente: yo vivo, tú vives, usted vive, él vive, ella vive, nosotros vivimos, vosotros vivís, ustedes viven, ellos viven, ellas viven.
English: As well as all the other verbs, it is possible to omit the pronouns of the first and second person in singular and plural, given that the form of the verb allows us to know who the subject of the sentence is.
Spanish: Al igual que todos los otros verbos, es posible omitir los pronombres en la primera y segunda persona del singular y del plural dado que la forma del verbo nos permite saber quién es el sujeto de la oración.
English: Let’s see an example with the verb “to go up”: I go up, you go up, we go up, you go up, but you go up, he goes up, she goes up,and likewise you go up, they go up, they go up.
