Le futur simple
So far this year, we have learned the present tense (to talk about things that are happening now) and the past tense (to talk about things that already happened). But what if we want to talk about something that will happen? For that, we need a whole new tense: the futur simple.
It’s easy! All you do is add the endings to the infinitive, and you’ve got it! The endings for futur simple are: je -ainous-ons tu-asvous-ez il-ails-ont elle-aelles-ont on-aqui-a
Regardez ces exemples: regarder nous regarder ons we will watch choisirtu choisir as you will choose Vendre elle vendr a she will sell
There’s one little trick to remember. Look at the example with “vendre” again. Do you see what we did? That’s right, we dropped the “e” before we added our ending. That wasn’t so bad, was it?
Ok, so some of the verbs don’t like to follow the rules. To be perfectly honest a lot of the verbs don’t like to follow the rules. There is no trick to learning them, they just have to be memorized.
Here they are: aller ir-j’ ir aiI will go avoir aur- tu aur asyou will have devoir devr-il devr ahe will have to être ser-elle ser ashe will be faire fer-nous fer onswe will do / make
Here they are: pouvoir pourr-vous pourr ezyou will be able to recevoir recevr-ils recevr ontthey will receive savoir saur-elles saur ontthey will know venir viendr-on viendr awe will come
Here they are: devenir deviendr-qui deviendr awho will become Revenir reviendr-je reviendr aiI will come back voir verr-nous verr onswe will see vouloir voudr-elles voudr ontthey will want
There are also some verbs that have accents or consonants added to them in the futur simple because of pronunciation. Take a look: acheter tu ach è terasyou will buy jeter vous jet t erezyou will throw appeler qui appel l erawho will call
That’s it! You have learned your last verb tense for grade 9 French. You can now talk about things that are happening, have already happened, and will happen. Congratulations!
