8 As 90% of all French verbs are regular ER verbs it is essential that you know the verb endings off by heart.

9 Regular verbs: -ER verbs JOUER (to play) JOUER (to play) Je joue Tu joues Il, Elle, Onjoue Nous jouons Vous jouez Ils, Elles jouent I play you play he / she /one plays we play you all play they play

11 Regular Verbs -RE verbs VENDRE Je vends Tu vends Il, Elle, On vend Nous vendons Vous vendez Ils, Elles vendent I sell you sell he/she/one sells we sell you all sell they sell

12 Summary of Regular Verb Endings To form the present tense take off the last 2 letters of the infinitive (ER, RE or IR) and add the following endings. ERREIR IJe-e-s-is YouTu-es-s-is He/She/WeIl/Elle/On-e--it WeNous-ons-ons-issons You all/You (f) Vous-ez-ez-issez TheyIls/Elles-ent-ent-issent

13 Verbs starting with a vowel or h: When a verb starts with a vowel (A, E, I, O, U, Y) or a silent h, the pronoun Je becomes J. eg:Je aime Jaime. Je habite Jhabite. It is the same when a verb is preceded by a reflexive pronoun. eg: sappeler:Je me appelle Je mappelle. shabiller:Tu te habilles Tu thabilles. shabiller:Tu te habilles Tu thabilles. sendormir:Elle se endort Elle sendort. sendormir:Elle se endort Elle sendort.

14 Some regular verbs have spelling changes for je, tu, il and ils. i.e. before a silent syllable. It is important that you are at least aware of these so that you will recognise these verbs.

15 In verbs that end in -eler or -eter the final consonant is doubled up in all but the nous and vous forms. jeter: (to throw) jeter: (to throw) Je jette Tu jettes Il jette Nous jetons Vous jetez Ils jettent. Another common verb belonging to this group is: appeler (to call) Exception to this rule: acheter

17 Verbs that end in –ayer, -oyer, -uyer change –y to –i nettoyer: (to clean) nettoyer: (to clean) Je nettoie Tu nettoies Il nettoie Nous nettoyons Vous nettoyez Ils nettoient.

18 Verbs with spelling changes in the NOUS form Verbs ending in –cer become –çons Verbs ending in –cer become –çons commencer: (to begin) Je commence Tu commences Il commence Nous commençons Vous commencez Ils commencent. Verbs ending in –ger become –eons Verbs ending in –ger become –eons manger: (to eat) Je mange Tu manges Il mange Nous mangeons Vous mangez Ils mangent

19 Reflexive verbs Many of these verbs are used to talk about your daily routine. They mean that you do something to yourself (eg: to wash oneself, to brush ones teeth, to wake up, to go to bed…). You conjugate them in the exact same way as regular verbs but they also need a in between the subject pronoun and the verb:… You conjugate them in the exact same way as regular verbs but they also need a reflexive pronoun in between the subject pronoun and the verb:…

20 Reflexive verbs Je me Tu te Il se Elle se On se Nous nous Vous vous Ils se Elles se eg: SE LEVER (to get up) Je me lève Tu te lèves Il se lève Elle se lève On se lève Nous nous levons Vous vous levez Ils se lèvent Elles se lèvent
