Verbs tell us what someone does or what happens. You can say a lot with a small number of verbs.
Verbs change form when used and they can either change predictably (regular verbs) or unpredictably (irregular verbs). To learn how a regular verb changes you must learn the rules. To learn how an irregular verb changes you must learn each one individually.
Regular verbs change their end and this is in relation to the subject (I, you, they etc). The verb will also change depending on tense (present, past, future etc).
Here are the rules for regular verbs used in most situations (the present tense) :
ich = -e
du = -st (informal you)
er, sie, es = -t
wir = -en
ihr = -t (informal you)
sie = -en
Sie = -en (formal you)
The change occurs to the end of the verb like so:
machen (to do)
er, sie, es macht
Note: sometimes grammar books refer to regular verbs as weak verbs, and irregular verbs as strong verbs.
