1 WHAT IS AN INFINITIVE? The infinitive is the basic, unconjugated form of a verb, sometimes called the name of the verb. In English the infinitive is to + verb: to be, to see, to eat, etc. We are going to concentrate on the verbs with – ER endings. Most –er verbs follow this pattern at the present tense: Aimer (to like) We CONJUGATE the infinitive: Jaime Nous Aimons Tu aimes Vous aimez Il/Elle aime Ils/Elles aiment The forms aime, aimes, aiment sound the same!

2 To Conjugate an ER verb: Take the whole verb, take off the ER and add the endings: THE ENDINGS ARE: Je---E Nous---ONS TU---ES Vous---EZ IL/elle/on--E Ils/ellesENT

3 Noun subjects take the same verb forms as their pronouns. Examples: Philippe aime la salade. Il aime la salade. Sophie et Julie aiment les vacances Elles aiment les vacances
