The Conditional- No Guarantees

  • To express something that might happen, or would happen, if something else were to occur (if…then) you use the conditional mood (in English, it’s just would + verb)

  • Often used in a sentence with the word si= if

  • In French, to create the conditional, you use the future stem of the verb, and then add a set of endings


What was the future stem
What was the future stem?

  • In –er, and –ir regular verbs, the “future stem” just means the infinitive…like regarderorfinir

  • For –re regular verbs, the “future stem” just means drop the final e…like vendror attendr

  • There are some verbs with irregular future stems:

    Aller= ir faire= fervouloir=voudr

    Être= seravoir= aur


And those endings
And those endings…?

-Ais-ions

-Ais-iez

-Ait- aient

You’ll being seeing these endings again in one kind of past tense
