regular or irregular
Regular or irregular?
  • First, determine if the verb is irregular:
  • 1) Know which are the irregulars.
  • 2) They are usually common verbs.
  • 3) They are unique (no pattern) & you have to study each one.
  • The good news about REGULAR verbs:
  • They only have one of three endings
  • They follow a pattern.

Regular verbs: the pattern explained
  • The infinitive of most verbs in French end in the letters ER. This is the family we are studying in this presentation.
  • Lesser numbers end in the letters IR and RE.
  • Most follow a regular pattern for each “ending group” above.
  • Exceptions to this pattern are called irregular verbs.
  • So if you learn the regular patterns you will know the patterns for most verbs.
  • To conjugate each verb in the present tense, the last two letters (ER, IR, RE) are dropped and a different ending is added for each pronoun (I, you, he, she, it, we, you all, they).

►French stem-changing verbs are conjugated with the same endings as normal but have two different stems. Stem-changing verbs are sometimes called boot verbs.

►We will study the verbs acheter & préférer :

Change of accent in the stem

►And the verbs manger & commencer:

Add an “e” or a “ç”

►We will also meet Aller: the black sheep of the ER family!
