It might be helpful to say that the only thing irregular about the endings (beyond the stem change) is the lack of an i in the third person plural.

Hola Pete

A note has been added to the lesson to highlight that difference between the 3rd person plural ending -eron, instead of the usual form -ieron.

Gracias, un saludo
