'My little brother loves to wash dishes.' How would you say that in Spanish? Find out in this quiz on conjugating verbs.

Grammar - Conjugating Verbs - Is it AR, ER or IR?

This Spanish Easy Review grammar quiz will test you on conjugating ar, er and ir verbs. Okay, at this point you should have had quite a bit of introduction and practice with many Spanish verbs. In fact, you should be familiar with about 100 different verbs, both regular and irregular. You should also have a grasp on understanding that Spanish verbs are either ar, er or ir verbs. Now let’s see how well you can remember what kind of a verb a word is when you only see it in its English conjugated form. In other words, if you see 'he walks', is the Spanish word for 'he walks' an ar verb, an er verb or an ir verb?

Because you will not be shown the verb in its Spanish form, you will have to draw upon memory of what the Spanish verb is.

Below you will be shown ten different verbs in English. From the answers given, you will need to choose whether the verb is an ar verb, an er verb or an ir verb. Note that the last answer in each problem reads 'don’t know'. If you pick this answer your answer will be wrong for that problem. This should make finding the answer a little easier as you only really have three choices to choose from. So, are you ready? Then begin the quiz!
