How to Conjugate Hablar in Indicative Tense

In Spanish, we use the indicative tense to talk about habits, descriptions, and facts. This is the most common mood in the Spanish language, and you will see it applied in statements in the past, present, and future tense. Hablar is used in this tense to indicate who is speaking or what they are speaking about. We’ll cover the next indicative tenses: indicative present, indicative future, indicative preterite, indicative imperfect, and indicative conditional.

Indicative Present

The indicative present tense is used to discuss present events. You can use hablar in this tense to inform others about what you are speaking or who you are talking to at the current time. Because the indicative mood states facts and habits, you can also conjugate hablar to tell people about the languages you speak! For example, you can say “Vos le hablás en alemán a tu tío” which means, “You speak in German to your uncle.”
