1 Notes le novembre Le conjugaison des verbes réguliers en –er (Conjugating regular –er verbs) We’ve already learned the complete conjugation of one verb, ÊTRE (to be). ÊTRE (to be) je suis (I am)nous sommes (we are) tu es(you are)vous êtes (you (plural) are) il/elle est (he/she is)ils/elles sont (they are)

2 Now we’ll learn how to conjugate regular verbs that end in -er. To conjugate a verb, you take the stem of the INFINITIVE and add the appropriate endings. The infinitive is the most basic form of a verb. Most infinitives in French end in –er. Here are some examples of French infinitives: quitter (to leave) arriver (to arrive) habiter (to live)

3 When conjugating a verb, you remove the final –er from the infinitive, which leaves you with the VERB STEM. InfinitiveStem quitter quitt- arriver arriv- habiter habit-

4 You finish the conjugation by adding the following endings. The ending you choose depends on the subject of the verb. SubjectVerb ending je-e tu-es il/elle-e nous -ons vous-ez ils/elles-ent

5 Here are the complete present tense conjugations of two –er verbs: PARLER (to speak) je parle (I speak)nous parlons (we speak) tu parles (you speak)vous parlez (you (plural) speak) il/elle parle (he/she speaks)ils/elles parlent (they speak) AIMER (to like, love) j’aime (I like)nous aimons (we like) tu aimes (you like)vous aimez (you (plural) like) il/elle aime (he/she likes)ils/elles aiment (they like)

6 The endings are silent except for –ons and –ez. je quitte tu quittes il/elle quitte nous quittons vous quittez ils/elles quittent

7 If a verb begins with a vowel or a vowel sound, there is a contraction between je and the verb: J’aime le français. (I like French.) J’habite à Issaquah. (I live in Issaquah.)

8 You use ne…pas to make a negative. Ne contracts when it comes before a vowel or vowel sound. Tu aimes les maths? -Non, je n’aime pas les maths. Vous habitez à Paris? - Non, nous n’habitons pas à Paris. Nous habitons à Montréal.
