Leçon 4 = PRESENT TENSE OF REGULAR -IR VERBS

BATIR = to build

AFFIRMATIVE

I build, I am building, I do build

je bâtis
tu bâtis
il bâ!@#$%^&
elle bâ!@#$%^&
on bâ!@#$%^&

nous bâtissons
vous bâtissons
ils bâtissent
elles bâtissent

INTERROGATIVE:

am I building? do I build?

est-ce que je bâtis?
bâtis-tu?
bâ!@#$%^&-il?
bâ!@#$%^&-elle?
bâ!@#$%^&-on?

bâtissons-nous?
bâtissez-vous?
bâtissent-ils?
bâtissent-elles?

NEGATIVE:

I am not building, I do not build

Je ne bâtis pas
tu ne bâtis pas
il ne bâ!@#$%^& pas
elle ne bâ!@#$%^& pas
on ne bâ!@#$%^& pas

nous ne bâtissons pas
vous ne bâtissez pas
ils ne bátissent pas
elles ne bâtissent pas

NEGATIVE INTERROGATIVE:

am I not building? do I not build?

est-ce que je ne bâtis pas?
ne bâtis-tu pas?
ne bâ!@#$%^&-il pas?

ne bâ!@#$%^&-on pas?

ne bâtissons-nous pas?
ne bâtissez-vous pas?
ne bâtissent-ils pas?
ne bâtissent-elles pas?

NOTE:

1. The personal wendings of the present tense of -ir verbs are: -is, -is, -it, -issons, -issez, -issent

2. Est-ce que (qu') may be used in all interrogaive forms.

COMMON -IR VERBS:

bâtir, to build
choisir, to choose
finir, to finish
guérir, to cure
obéir (à), to obey
punir, to punish
remplir, to fill
réussir, to succeed

Now, choose a few of these to conjugate in: Affirmative, Interrogative, Negative and Negative Interrogative, to be sure you have the pattern!

Wow! Thanks I never learned batir, guerir, or reussir. Could you tell me how to type the accent marks because it looks like I spell things wrong all the time without them?

If you have a MAC computer (which I do) making accent marks is a "snap." If, however, you have a PC, it is very much harder! So, first of all, let me know which kind of computer you have. Hopefully, you WILL get some conjugated verbs back to me? The next lesson will be the -re verbs. Notice, that if you have to guess about an infinitive, there are so many MORE -er verbs!

Also, I'd have to know if you have Windows, Microsoft Word, etc. Here are 2 sites to try:
