Verbos regulares

-ER verbs are the second biggest category of regular Spanish verbs. To conjugate an -er verb, remove the infinitive ending and then add the appropriate endings, as follows:

Singular         Plural
1st person    yo-o nosotros -emos
2nd person-es vosotros-éis
3rd personél-e ellos-en

Thus to conjugate aprender, you’ll remove the infinitive ending to find the radical aprend and then add the appropriate endings:

APRENDERSingular         Plural
1st person   yoaprendo nosotros aprendemos
2nd personaprendes vosotrosaprendéis
3rd personélaprende ellosaprenden
