What Does It Mean To Conjugate a Verb ?

To conjugate a verb, you change the ending so that the verb matches the subject of the sentence.
If you did not do this, we would all sound like Tarzan.
In this photo, Tarzan did not conjugate the verb to be.  He should have said, " I am Tarzan. You are Jane."

This is what it looks like when a Spanish text book conjugates a verb

SER  (to be)

soy  (I am)..........................      somos  (We are)
eres (you are - informal)
es   (you/he/she is)...........        son  (You guys/ they are)
