Script:

“Today, we are going to talk about regular verbs.

Regular verbs are my favorite kind of verb.

Why?

Because they follow predictable conjugation patterns.

[deliver above line using a spooky voice as if you are looking into a crystal ball]

To conjugate a regular verb: just take the verb stem and add the ending that matches the subject. That’s it!

Here, I’ll show you what I mean.

Let’s conjugate the present tense of a couple regular verbs.

First, we need to identify the verb stem. It’s easy!”
