1 HOW TO CONJUGATE REGULAR VERBS IN THE PRESENT TENSE !!! A regular verb is one which follows a regular pattern. There are three types of regular verb in French…….. Verbs ending in ER (these are the most common) Eg regarder, écouter,chanter, manger, danser, parler,jouer Verbs ending in IR Eg finir,choisir Verbs ending in RE Eg attendre

2 How do you conjugate a regular verb ending in ER ??!! First of all take off the ER Then add the correct ending for the subject pronoun(I,you,he,she..etc.. but in French!!) which you are using. For regular ER verbs the endings are as follows… Je ………….e Tu ………….es Il/elle/on …… e Nous ……… ons Vous ……… ez Ils/elles ………ent

3 Now lets try it with REGARDER = to watch (infinitive) 3 STEPS 1. First choose your personal pronoun………je/tu/il/elle/on/nous/vous/ils/elles Je Tu Il Elle On Nous Vous Ils Elles 2. Then take the ER off regarder and put it after your pronoun regard 3. Now add the correct ending for your pronoun e es e e e ent ent ez ons

4 How do you conjugate a regular verb ending in IR??!! First of all take off the IR Then add the correct ending for the subject pronoun(I,you,he,she..etc.. but in French!!) which you are using. For regular IR verbs the endings are as follows… Je ………….is Tu …………is Il/elle/on …… it Nous ……… issons Vous ……… issez Ils/elles ………issent

5 HOWEVER!!!!!!!!! The verbs finir =to finish and choisir= to choose work like this but some other common verbs you know and need DONT! (oh la la!!!) Dormir(to sleep), partir (to leave) and sortir(to go out) are the important ones to learn! SEE NEXT SLIDE

6 Dormir (to sleep) Je dors Tu dors Il dort Elle dort On dort Nous dormons Vous dormez Ils dorment Elles dorment Sortir (to go out) Je sors Tu sors Il sort Elle sort On sort Nous sortons Vous sortez Ils sortent Elles sortent Partir (to sleep) Je pars Tu pars Il part Elle part On part Nous partons Vous partez Ils partent Elles partent Although they dont follow the same regular pattern as the other ir verbs, can you see a pattern that they do follow???

7 How do you conjugate a regular verb ending in RE (or OIR??!! First of all take off the RE Then add the correct ending for the subject pronoun(I,you,he,she..etc.. but in French!!) which you are using. For regular ER verbs the endings are as follows… Je ………….s Tu ………….s Il/elle/on …… - Nous ……… ons Vous ……… ez Ils/elles ………ent Sadly ……not many RE verbs do follow this pattern so you have to learn the important ones by heart! (Etre,avoir,pouvoir,faire,prendre, voire,vouloir,devoir,mettre,boire, recevoir, lire)

8 MANY HAPPY VERB ENDINGS ! Hope this helps..
