Lesson 2: Conjugation Regular Verbs are verbs ending in er. To conjugate, remove the er then add the corresponding ending For example: The verb is Aimer (to love). When we remove er, it becomes Aim. Then we conjugate. Pronoun Je Tu Il/Elle/On Nous Vous Ils/Elles Radical Aim Aim Aim Aim Aim aim Ending -e -es -e -ons -ez -ent Jaime Tu aimes Il/Elle/On aime Nous aimons Vous aimez Ils/Elles aiment
Replace (e) with an apostrophe when the radical starts with a vowel. Ex: Je + aime = Jaime Dont forget! Dont forget! Tu: informal :: Vous: formal

However, in French there are exceptions. Case 1: When the final vowel is laccentaigu (). Change laccentaigu () to laccent grave (). But, in nous and vous, do not change it. Example: The verb is prfrer. (et: esprer, rpter, complter) Pronoun Je Tu Il/Elle/On Nous Vous Ils/Elles Radical prfr prfr prfr prfr prfr prfr Ending -e -es -e -ons -ez -ent Je prfre Tu prfres Il/Elle/On prfre Nous prfrons Vous prfrez Ils/Elles prfrent

Case 2: The vowel of the stem changes from a schwa (written e and often ellided) to . The vowel changes occurs: Before non-syllabic endings in the present tense (i.e. except in the nous and vous forms) Example: The verb is acheter. (et: mener, amener, emmener, enlever, peser)

Pronoun Je Tu Il/Elle/On Nous Vous Ils/Elles Radical acht acht acht achet achet acht Ending -e -es -e -ons -ez -ent Jachte Tu achtes Il/Elle/On achte Nous achetons Vous achetez Ils/Elles achtent
Dont forget! Replace (e) with an

apostropheWhen the radical starts with a vowel. Ex: Je + achte = Jachte

Case 3:When using these verbs with particular tenses, the letter "L" or "T" respectively is doubled, and normal conjugation is used. However, you do not double "L" or "T" when using the "nous" or "vous" form. Example: The verb is appeler. (et: jeter) Pronoun Je Tu Il/Elle/On Nous Vous Ils/Elles Radical Appell Appell Appell Appel Appel Appell Ending -e -es -e -ons -ez -ent Jappelle Tu appelles Il/Elle/On appelle Nous appelons Vous appelez Ils/Elles appellent

Case 4: If the radical ends with ger, add (e) after the radical when using nous. If the radical ends with cer, change (c) to then conjugate. Example: The verb is manger. (et: changer, nager, partager) Pronoun Je Tu Il/Elle/On Nous Vous Ils/Elles Radical Mang Mang Mang Mange Mang Mang Ending -e -es -e -ons -ez -ent Je mange Tu manges Il/Elle/On mange Nous mangeons Vous mangez Ils/Ellesmangent

Ex: Je + achte = Jachte Dont forget! Replace (e) with an

apostropheWhen the radical starts with a vowel.

Case 5: When the radical ends with (y), change y to (i) then conjugate, except when the pronoun is nous and vous. Example: The verb is payer. (et: envoyer) Pronoun Je Tu Il/Elle/On Nous Vous Ils/Elles Radical pai pai pai pay pay pai Ending -e -es -e -ons -ez -ent Je paie Tu paies Il/Elle/On paie Nous payons Vous payez Ils/Elles paie

Lesson 3: Negation To make sentences negative, simply put ne and pas around the verb. When the verb is in reflexive form, put ne between the two vous and nous. Example: Regina ne parle pas bien franais. (Regina does not speak French well) Polo necoute pas. (Polo does not listen) Nico nest pas homosexuel.(Nico is not gay) Polo et moi naimons pas Nico. (Polo and I do not love Nico) Vous ne vous appelez pas Isabel.(You are not called Isabel)
Dont forget! Replace (e) with an apostrophe when the verb starts with a vowel. Ex: necoute, nest

Lesson 3: Interrogation You can change a declarative sentence to an interrogative sentence by changing the intonation. Example: Vous parlez anglais. (You speak English) Vous parlez anglais? (You speak English?)

Lesson 6: Determining the Gender: Masculine and Feminine

In French, there is no specific rule on determining the gender of a word. You just have to memorize. However, there are some clues which would make help you determine the gender of that word. Masculine -age Le fromage -ment Le gouvernment -eau Le gateau -phone Le tlphone -scope Le tlscope -isme Le tourisme Feminine -tion -sion -t -ette -ance La station La dcision La beaut La bicyclette Lesperance

Lesson 7: Definite and Indefinite Articles Articles and adjectives must agree in number and gender with the nouns they modify. Articles have to be expressed even though they aren't always in English; and you may have to repeat the article in some cases. Demonstratives are like strong definite articles. Use definite article if you are referring to a specific object, otherwise use indefinite article. Definite Articles (The) Feminine Before Vowel la pomme l'oiseau (the apple) (the bird) Indefinite Articles (A, An, Some) Feminine une pomme (an apple)

Masculine le lit (the bed)

Plural les gants (the gloves)

Masculine un lit (a bed)

Plural des gants (some gloves)
