  • 1. -er verbs
    By: Andrea Murray
    EDU 290
  • 2. What is an –er verb?
    An –er verb is a verb in French that ends in -er
  • 3. Example of –er verbs
    Aimer - to like
    Parler-to talk
    Habiter- to live
    Manger -to eat
    Porter -to wear
    Adorer -to love, to adore
    Etudier- to study
    Ecouter- to listen to
    Travailler-to work
    Regarder- to watch
    All –er verbs are conjugated the same!
  • 4. All –er verbs are conjugated using the same formula. To demonstrate how to conjugate this type of verb I will be using aimer. But, what you must keep in mind is that the verbs listed in the above slide, and other –er verbs, are conjugated using the same formula.
  • 5. To conjugate an –er verb take off the –er at the end of the verb and replace it with the appropriate ending.
  • 6. -er verb endings
    Je - e
    J’aimele chien.
    Tu -es
    Tuaimesle chien.
    Il/elle/on –e
    Elle aimele chien.
    Nous - ons
    Nous aimonsle chien.
    Vous- ez
    Vousaimezle chien.
    Ils/elles- ent
    Ilsaimentle chien.
  • 7. You might have noticed in the above slide that Je when conjugated with the verb aimer turned to J’aime instead of Je aime. This is because when conjugating with Je if the verb you are conjugating it with starts with a vowel you drop the -e on Je, put an apostrophe after the -j and make the two words one word.
    Examples:
    Correct:Incorrect:
    J’aime le pizza. Je aime le pizza.
    J’ecoute a la musique. Je ecoute a la musique.
