I just took an online quiz on conjugating ar verbs in the present tense. I answered 10 questions and got two wrong, the vosotros conjugations. I put the accent on the i instead of the a, which makes sense if I took the time to pronounce it. It sounds silly to have the i accented.
Spanish studying/learning resources. Here’s a site with a bunch of quizzes you can take conjugating verbs in all of the different tenses. Check it out: http://www.studyspanish.com/verbs/
I’ll continue to add resources to this post as I find useful ones.
https://www.duolingo.com – recommended by my friend David. Just checked it out. Love it! You can take a bunch of fun tests and it’s interactive. The tests involve translating, conjugating and listening.
