How to form the conditional in Spanish

The conditional in Spanish (as in related languages) is essentially based on the future tense form:

Conditional verb endings

The endings added to form the conditional tense are always the following:

they'd eat
you'd come
he'd/she'd ask
nosotros, -as-íamoscompraríamos
we'd buy
vosotros, -as-íaisestaríais
you'd be
they'd go

These endings are actually the same as the imperfect of -er and -ir verbs.
