what is an easy way to remember conjigations for the irregular verbs
I have taken Frech for 4 years. There is no way. you just have to memorize them. sorry.
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. I'm afraid Sam is right! Here are a few things you can rely on.
1. The first person p lural of irregular verbs (nous form) ends in -ons, except: nous sommes.
2. The second person plural (vous) ends in -ez, except: vous dites, vous êtes, vous faites.
3. Thge third person plural(ils/elles) ends in -ent, except: ils vont, ils ont, ils sont, ils font.
4. The two forms for the first p erson singular of pouvoir are interchan geable (peux/puis) except that
a. the negative is "je ne peux pas" OR "je ne puis
b. the inverted question form is "puis-je?"
