¡Hooola! ¿Cómo estás? Let´s have a look at the conjugation of regular -er verbs in Spanish in present tense. It is important to remember that in Spanish, verbs have a stem (or root) and an infinitive ending.
If the infinitive of the verb ends in -er, it means that the verb belongs to the second conjugation. And how do we conjugate regular -er verbs? Well, it´s actually quite easy. All you need to do is to drop the -er and add the following endings to the stem: -o, -es, -e, -emos, -éis, -en.
Here is the present tense of the regular -er verb vender (to sell):

usted vende (you sell) – formal, singular
nosotros/as vendemos (we sell)
vosotros/as vendéis (you sell) – informal, plural
ellos venden (they sell)
ellas venden (they sell)
ustedes venden (you sell) – formal, plural
