1 -er verbs

2 On p. 31 of your text are many new verbs, many of which are considered regular –er verbs. This means they all are spelled similarly when writing sentences. Here are some common –er verbs: jouer: to play regarder: to look at, watch danser: to dance écouter: to listen to

3 Common –er verbs étudier: to study nager: to swim voyager: to travel
dîner: to dine téléphoner: to telephone chanter: to sing organiser: to organise travailler: to work

4 More common –er verbs habiter: to live inviter: to invite
aimer: to like parler: to speak Notice all include the word to. This is called the infinitive and is the original form of the verb.

5 conjugation Let’s work with the verb aimer: to like
To use aimer in sentences, the spelling must agree with the subject (je, tu, il, elle, etc). The first step is to begin with the infinitive and remove the –er. aimer This leaves you with the stem aim. Next we will add the stem next to each subject pronoun.

6 Conjugation continued
J’aim nous aim Tu aim nous aim Il/elle/on aim ils/elles aim Notice the j’ above. Use this with vowel sounds. Next we will add appropriate endings for each subject pronoun. The endings for all regular –er verbs are as follows

7 -er verb endings Je/j’: -e nous : -ons Tu: -es vous: -ez
Il/elle/on: -e ils/elles: -ent Add these endings to the stem to say I like, you like, he/she likes, etc.

8 Adding the endings to the stem
J’aime I like Tu aimes You like Il/elle/on aime He/She/One likes Nous aimons We like Vouz aimez You like Ils/elles aiment They like

9 Creating sentences Using this pattern of endings, you can create sentences with any regular –er verb. Je chante: I sing, I do sing, I am singing Tu parles: you speak, you do speak, you are speaking Elle danse. She dances, she is dancing, she does dance Il organise

10 5. Nous travaillons. 6. Vous écoutez 7. Ils étudient 8. Elles invitent

11 Verbes ending in -ger nager: to swim voyager: to travel manger: to eat
ranger: to put away, arrange, pick up When conjugating these verbs, keep the e before adding –ons in the nous form. example: nous mangeons: we eat

12 -ger verbs nous nageons: we swim nous voyageons: we travel
This affects sentences containing nous only.
