2 ER Verbs The most common form of French verbs. The infinitives end in the letters ER.We’ve already used so many of them: jouer, aimer, toucher, ecouter, manger, danser, chanter, fermer, crier, marcher, regarder, commander, etc!When we conjugate these verbs, there are rules that we follow, and they are the same every time.(But be careful! Some verbs ending in ER are “irregular verbs” and do not follow the same rules. ex: aller)
3 We’ve already seen and used these conjugated: Il joue au foot = ?J’aime danser = ?Nous chantons = ?Elles ecoutent de la musique = ?Remember, when they are in the infinitive, they mean “to _______”. We have been using that the most often (Je veux jouer, Tu vas manger, Elle aime regarder la tele, etc).
4 Actually, each one has three meanings: But, as we have seen (mostly in our stories & specific vocabulary phrases), when they are conjugated to the PRESENT TENSE, they look like this:danser = to danceJe danse = I dance Nous dansons = We danceTu danse = You dance Vous dansez = You (all) danceIl danse = He dances Ils dansent = They danceThe person is directly doing the action, not “wants to” or “likes to” or “is going to”, as we have used most of these so far.Actually, each one has three meanings:I dance.I do dance.I am dancing.
5 THE RULESDrop the “er” from the end of the word. (jouer becomes jou, which is called the stem of the word). Then add the following for each subject pronoun:Je eNous onsTu esVous ezIl/Elle/On -eIls/Elles ent
