Here's an example of a simple tense:

Yo voy  - I go
Tú vas  - You go
Él va - He goes
Nosotros vamos  - We go
Vosotros váis - You go
Ellos van - They go

There are 9 simple tenses in Spanish:

  1. El presente
  2. El pretérito indefinido
  3. El pretérito imperfecto
  4. El futuro simple
  5. El condicional simple
  6. El presente de subjuntivo
  7. El imperfecto de subjuntivo
