    Re: Constructions forms

    Welcome to the forums.

    You need to ask more specific questions.

    What are some sentences you are having trouble with?

    (I think you mean "the reality" not "the really.")
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I am not sure I understand your question, but here is a table of correspondence for the verb "to be"

    I am

    Probus, there is no table and no link in your post, and the words "I am" are floating at the end of your post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There's no simple way to learn conjugations (which I guess you're referring to) in any language, although English is certainly easier than your language. The verb "to be" (I am, you are, he is ...) has to be memorised just as "ser" (yo soy, tu eres, etc.) has to for those learning Spanish. Was that your question? I find that making a table helps, with the personal pronouns on one axis and the tenses on the other.
