01067 Present Tense – Stem-changing verbs (E-I)

Hola. In this lesson, we’ll be talking about verbs that go through a change in the middle. We call them stem-changing verbs. In this video, we discuss one type, those that change from e-i. If you remember the verb decir, the other verbs in this video change in a similar way.

Enjoy!
