To conjugate -ere verbs at the presente indicativo tense, we have to follow the same process as with -are verbs. That is, you take the infinitive form of the verb (for example, leggere), then drop the ending -ere, leaving you with legg-, and finally add the appropriate endings. The endings differ according to the person they refer to.
*Some -ere verbs, like lèggere, have the stress on the first "e" of the infinitive but some others have the stress on the second syllable.
For instance, take the verb vedére. For this verb, the stress changes. When in doubt, check a dictionary to see where the stress is.
