Can two verbs be in the same sentence? I get that one is an infinitive, but does that mean every verb can combine with another infinitive? or is there a limit as to only certain verbs can be used together with an infinitive?

For example, is "Je deteste ecouter..."correct? or "Je prefere manger..."

  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Of course you can have two verbs in the same sentence. Just be sure you don't have a run-on sentence; that means two conjugated verbs without a conjunction, etc. In your examples: Je déteste écouter / Je préfère manger... these are perfect! In fact, here's an example with 3 verbs: je vais aller écouter des disques! (Note that there is only ONE conjugated verb!)
