    Verbos en -ar

    Now that’s we’ve learned to be (ser), let’s get up and moving a bit. In this section, we’ll learn the meaning of a number of regular verbs that end in -ar, including “caminar” (to walk), “bailar” (to dance), and “nadar” (to swim).

    In this vocabulary section, we won’t be working on the conjugations yet (that comes in the next section). For now, we’ll just learn the meaning of the verbs. And, in order to tell time in the section after that, we’ll learn to count to 100 now.
