Leçon 5: PRESENT TENSE OF REGULAR -RE VERBS

entendre, to hear

AFFIRMATIVE:

I hear, I am hearing, I do hear

j'entends
tu entends
il entend
elle entend
on entend

nous entendons
vous entendez
ils entendent
elles entendent

INTERROGATIVE:

am I hearing? do I hear? I hear?

est-ce que j'entends?
entends-tu?
entend-il?
entend-elle?
entend-on?

entendons-nous?
entendez-vous?
entendent-ils?
entendent-elles?

NOTE:

1. The personal endings of the present tense of -re verbs are: -s, -s, -, -ons, -ez, -ent.

2. These verbs form their negative and negative interrogative in the same manner as -er and -ir verbs. For examle:

NEGATIVE:

je n'entends pas
nous n'entendons pas

NEGATIVE INTERROGATIVE:

est-ce que je n'entends pas?
n'entendons-nous pas?

COMMON -RE VERBS:

attendre, to wait (for)
défendre, to defend
descendre, to go (come) down
entendre, to hear
perdre, to lose
rendre, to give back, return
répondre (à), to answer
vendre, to sell

OK, I have a big "exam" ready for you when you know all the -er, -ir, -re verbs I've sent you! If you have them all in your working vocabulary, you will have a GOOD foundation on verbs. You can let me know when you are ready for this exam or I can give you the IMPERATIVE/COMMANDS first. These will only be regular verbs. Then we will move on to the Present Tense of Irregular Verbs!
