Transcript of The French Present Conditional.

Conditionals with Third Group Verb ('RE' Verbs) The French conditional mood is very similar to the English conditional mood. It describes events that are not guaranteed to occur; often they are dependent on certain conditions. While the French conditional mood has a full set of conjugations, the English equivalent is just the modal verb "would" + main verb".
The French conditional is mainly used in if ... then, to express what would happen if a condition were met.
Example: -> Il mangerait s'il avait faim.
=He would eat if he were hungry. What is the Present Conditionnel? To form the present conditionel in french, all one should remember is the future stems in french along with the Imparfait endings.
REMEMBER: The Imparfait Endings.
-> Je = ais
-> Tu = ais
-> Il/Elle = ait
-> Nous = ions
-> Vous = iez
-> Ils/Elles = aient How do we form the
