The following table shows the general pattern for conjugating -IR verbs, using vivir as an example.
This pattern can be used for any regular -AR verb. While there are some irregular verbs which are exceptions, it makes verbs very easy to use. Simply memorise the pattern, and you will be able to use and recognise -AR verbs.
