Conjugating

To conjugate means to give the different forms of a verb depending on the subject.  English only has two regular conjugations in the present tense, no ending and -s ending (I, you, we, they run vs. he/she/it runs).  To conjugate regular verbs in German, remove the -en ending and add the following endings (* though some of these verbs require spelling changes in addition to adding these endings):

-e (ich)
-en (sie)
-st (du)
-t (sie)
-t (er)
-en (Sie)
