If you look closely at the graph, you will see that there are four ways to tell yourself in Spanish. Let`s start with you. Te is the form used between friends.

The term infinitive suggests that the possibilities of the verb are infinite, that is, once it has not been conjugated, no person or number has been attributed to it.
In addition to the person and the number, the verbs also have tensions. Tense shows whether the action takes place in the present, the past or the future. There are a few moments that refine how the time of an action is viewed.
