Hi, I am both a native Spanish and English speaker. For the most part, you just have to learn how to  conjugate Spanish verbs but there are similarities. For example

the verb "jugar" to play 

       

Present                                        Past

Yo juego     I play                             Yo juge            I played

tu juegas     You play                        tu jugastes       you played

el/ella juega   He/he plays                 ella jugo                elle jugo

ellos juegan   they play                  ellos jugaron      ellos jugaron

The verb to pay

yo pago           I pay                     yo pague                I paid

tu pagas           You pay              tu pagastes           you paid

el/ella   pagan      he/she pays          el/ella pago      she paid

ellos pagan         they pay             ellos pagaron        They paid

You see how the endings are almost the same. You just need a lot of practice. My advice go to google and 

type in "conjugate + whatever ever spanish verb you want, that way you can get more practice.
