French verb conjugation
Terms
Personal pronouns:
-er verbs
Let's conjugate a verb!
1. Verb: a word that describes an action, a state of being or something that happens. (ex: to play, to eat, to be)
3. Conjugation: how a verb changes to describe who completed the action and when the action is completed. (ex: to eat - I eat, they ate, we will eat)
2. Personal pronoun: words that replace nouns and who complete an action when used in conjugation exercises. (ex: I, you, he/she, we, they)
5. verb endings: -er, -ir, -re
4. infinitive: the verb before you conjugate it. It is not changed yet to reflect who completes the action and when it takes place. (ex: manger, finir, descendre)
Note: today, we're learning regular verb conjugation.
There are also irregular verbs that don't follow the same rules, which we will discuss later.
6. Stem (or root): the part of the verb without the ending
(ex: manger - mang is the stem)
je
tu
il/elle/on
nous
vous
ils/elles
I
you (informal)
he/she/we (informal) or people in general
we
you all
they (masculine/feminine)
singular
plural
3. remove the ending to find the stem
2. write the pronouns
4. write the stem next to each pronoun
5. add the following endings to the stem:
je
tu
il/elle/on
nous
vous

Let's take it one step further:
"Aimer" is a regular -er verb that is used a lot in French.
It means "
to like
" or "
to love
".
You can use it with any noun (person, place, thing).
Write a 6 sentence composition using the verb "aimer".
Double check your conjugations.
Try to use vocabulary that you do know, and look up nouns that you don't know in the dictionary.
Keep it simple!
ex: J'aime le chocolat. J'aime le français!
1 sentence: What do you like/love?
1 sentence: what does your mother or father like/love? (which pronoun should you use?)
1 sentences: what does the class like/love? (which pronoun should you use?)
1 sentence: What do you like/love to do?
1 sentence: what does your mother or father like/love to do? (which pronoun should you use?)
1 sentences: what does the class like/love to do? (which pronoun should you use?)
You can also use the verb "aimer" with another verb to describe things that you like to do.
You will conjugate "aimer" and leave the other verb unconjugated (infinitive).
ex: J'aime chanter. J'aime nager.
