1 Today we are going to learn how to conjugate ER verbs.

2 Les verbes Verbs are action words. In French, the basic form of a verb ends in “er”, “ir” or “re”. E.g. sauter, choisir, comprendre The simplest form of a verb is called the “infinitif”  to + action sauter = to jumpchoisir = to choose comprendre = to understand

3 Conjugation What if you want to say “I am jumping”, “She chooses” or “We understand”? to jump  am jumping to choose  chooses to understand  understand We have to make a slight change to the “infinitif” form of the verb. This is called conjugating a verb (or conjugation). The conjugated verb looks very similar to the “infinitif” of the verb.

4 Pronoms sujets We conjugate verbs according to the person or thing that is performing the action. SingulierPluriel je  Inous  we tu  youvous  you il  heils  they (all masculin or masc. + fém.) elle  sheelles  they (all féminin) qui  who Note: “je” is lower case in French (unlike “I” in English) tu  a friend, someone the same age as you vous  group of people, someone you don’t know well, someone older, to show respect
