Grammar - Subject pronouns and verbs present tense conjugation.


In this video presentation, we will see how to conjugate French verbs ending by -ER (e.g, travailler, étudier, habiter, parler, manger etc.) in the present tense.

We will discover other verbs’ conjugation in the present tense during our course. Occasionally their conjugation will be formally presented in a grammar point or they will be seen in context, and you will be able to check their conjugation in WordReference.

Note that in French, we only have one present tense. Depending on the context, JE PARLE could be translated by any of these:

  • I speak
  • I am speaking
  • I do speak
