I have only included the conjugation of the verb 'SALTAR' here. (For the conjugation of other verbs see the links in the box below)
I use the Spanish terminology for the verb description because the English terms can be misleading.
Below the name of each verb type, I offer a literal translation of the first person singular form eg. 'I jump'. This is just a broad reference to help you identify the verb type. The communicative use of the verb type in Spanish may often differ in English.
The Future Subjunctives marked with an * are nowadays only seen in literature and legal language.
For the conjugation only of '...ir' and '...er' regular verbs go to VIVIR / COMER
For the conjugation of IRREGULAR VERBS: ANDAR, DAR, ESTAR, CAER, CABER, HACER, PODER
For the conjugation of IRREGULAR VERBS: PONER, QUERER, SABER, SER, TRAER, VALER, VER
For the conjugation of IRREGULAR VERBS: DECIR, IR, OÍR, SALIR, VENIR
SALTAR (To jump)
(Remember: the 'usted' form takes the same as 'él' and 'ustedes' the same as 'ellos')
