If you're writing a sentence in French with two verbs, the first being l'imparfait, would the second one be in the infinitive? For example "Le peuple prehistoriques était intelligente parce que ils pouvaient ériger les monuments sans des machines" ? Is this correct?

  • French - ,

    Generally when there are two consecutive verbs, the second one is infinitive.
    But not auxiliary + past participle.
    Ex : Je dois partir (I must go)
    Je suis venu (I came)
    "Les peuples préhistoriques était intelligents ( parce que) car ils pouvaient ériger des monuments sans machines"

  • French - ,

    Les peuples préhistoriques étaient intelligents....
    Sorry I forgot the plural of "étaient"

  • French - ,

    and also "parce qu'ils ouvaient eriger...
    OR car ils pouvaient ériger...

    Sra (aka Mme)
