Bonjour mes amis,

Do you know what these words mean?

Danse
Danses
Dansons
Dansez
Dansent

Can you belive they all mean to dance?

The reason for this is easy. French verbs change forms once they are conjugated.

This lesson is on regular ER verbs. We will concentrate on regular (as opposed to irregular) verbs ending in ER.

In order to conjugate verbs ending in ER, we must do the following two steps:

1) Drop the ER ending to create a stem
2) Add the endings to the stem as per the following table.

ER

Je               e         Je Danse
Tu               es        Tu Danses
Il/Elle          e         Il/Elle Danse
Nous             ons       Nous Dansons
Vous             ez        Vous Dansez
Ils/Elles        ent       Ils/Elles Dansent

Once you feel comfortable with your memorization of the stems and endings, try the activities below, by clicking on the highlighted link, to check your knowledge.
