L'imparfait - The Imperfect tense

Older Post Newer Post


  • Just to mention, this isn’t the way to conjugate correctly. Often you can just remove the infinitive ending, but to conjugate correctly, you should find the nous form of the present tense and remove the ons, that will give you your stem. So faire is nous faisons, which gives you fais for a stem: je faisais = I used to do. Boire is nous buvons, giving you buv stem. This way, the only exception is être with the stem ét.
