All the verbs we have studied so far belong to the First Conjugation. Verbs belonging to the Second Conjugation have the vowel stem -e in thr Infinitive. The Present Tense of verbs belonging to the Second Conjugation is formed in the same way as those of the First.

To form the Present Tense, remove re from the Infinitive and add personal endings.
