Hi SARAH ,
Thank you for the comment!

“taberu” is a verb meaning “eat” and “tabemasu” is a polite form of it.
And “tabemashita” is a past tense. For esample, “Onigiri o tabemashita” means “I ate a riceball.”
Just saying “tabete” is an imperative form. When you say “tabete kudasai”, it becomes polite.

Hope this helps you.

What are class 1 and class 2 verbs?

Poneet san,
Konnichiwa.
Irregular verbs are only two, きます and します in the Japanese language. :smile:
切る 切ります 切って so it is a class 1 verb.

Why is 切る conjugated like a class 1 verb when it ends in ru?
Why isn’t it a class 3 irregular?

Because you’d think it would be 切て not 切って…

I’m confused! Please help!
