What is the difference between mange and manges?
manges is for the pronoun tu (you) and mange is for the pronoun je (I)
I am - Je suis You are - Tu es/Vous etes (basically a difference of formality) They are - Elles/Ils sont He/She is - Il/Elle est
it is the conjugation of the word MANGER (v: to eat) Remember the endings: e, es, e, ons, ez, ent You just take of the ER on MANGER and add the proper ending depending on the context i.e. je, tu, il/elle, nous, vous, ils/elles
mange is for je (i, or "1st person"), manges is for tu (you, or "2nd person")
There is an extra "s" because unlike in English, French verbs have to change endings depending on the subject. That concept is called conjugation.
Well it happens in English too, it's just that in English, for most verbs all the conjugations are identical except for 3rd person singular ("I eat" vs "it eats", "I teach" vs "he teaches", "I study" vs "she studies").
Mange is when I ( je ) is eating and manges is when you ( tu ) is eating -- Hope this helped
noir is an adjective. In French, adjectives agree in number and gender with the nouns they modify. If you are modifying a masculine noun, use "noir" for a feminine noun use "noire" for plural masculine use "noirs" etc...
Bois and boit are conjugations of the verb boire. Je bois Tu bois Il/Elle/On boit
The same verb, but the conjugation changes between endings. Like 32no shows you, each subject has its own ending. Mange is for je, and manges is for tu.
In simple present tense --- They are different conjugations for eating/eats/eat - je/ll/elle/on mange while tu manges. Use manges for "you" (tu)
You can check all of the verbs with the app LeConjugueur. Try it, its for Apple.
the complete verb is: je mange, tu manges, il/elle/on mange, nous mangeons, vous mangez, ils/elles mangent. you have to use the correct verb form with each person, the same when you have to use the s on the 3º person in english. it's a lilltle bit complicate to explain because in english the verbs have the same form for each person, but that doesn't happen in the lattins languajes like spanish, french, italian... Salut mon amie¡¡
because the verb mange is first person of singular, and manges is in third is person of singular
32no is correct its conjugation tu=you je=I mange=ate/eat manges=eat but for you
Bravo! bien expliquer! On écrit nous mangeons main on prononce manjeons! verbe conjuguer à la deuxième personne du singulier prends toujours "s" Ex. tu chantes tu joues tu manges etc...
"Nous mangeons" is correct. The "e" makes the "g" soft and therefore, it sounds like "j."
manges is plural where as mange is just singular so if you say men you would say manges because men is plural
No! manges is in singular form of "you eat"= tu manges. Plural form then will have to be " They eat= Ils mangent ex: men in french is "les hommes" whish is plural for men so if you are saying men eat? in French you would say " Les hommes mangent."
You use the word mange when using Je, Elle, or Il and manges is sometimes used in a plural, but is used after tu.
Well, just like we have past tense, present tense, and future tense in English, the FRench language also has different forms of words.
M A N G E R - Je m a n g e Tu m a n g e s Il/Elle mange
Nous mangeons Vous mangez Ils/Elles mangent
so difficult to understand.....why does it matter is you are learning to speak French? NOT TEACH IT.
You will eventually become aware of the concept of conjugation. When the subject pronoun changes the verb has to change to match it. The verb changes by gender, number, tense, mood, and so on. These changes are all organized into a conjugation. You seem to be working on present tense. Asking questions is a good way to get this down. Some conjugations are regular - you will love these. Some are irregular, but with practice you will get the hang of them.
Most ending in -ER like manger, ecouter, dancer, etc, are conjugated like this:
take off the -ER
Watch out: "we eat" is "nous mangeons", so when splitting the verb into mang-er, we have to add -eons for "we eat". In the above conjugation table, it says that we have to add "-ons".
But the above table is fine, actually. It works for /regular/ verbs ending in -er:
to dance = danser -- we dance = nous dansons
to listen = écouter -- we listen = nous écoutons
to speak = parler -- we speak = nous parlons etc...
"manger" has this small irregularity which it shares with other verbs ending in -ger.

if there is je in the sentence so it is mange but if there is tu or talking to other people so it is manges. please reply
mange is present tense which means I eat, manges is present coninous tense which means I am eating.
There are different endings for a pronoun, usually with Tu, there's an s at the end
32no, you seem to have made a mistake in your conjugation table- you say take off the -ER for the verbs that end with it, and when conjugating nous, add -ons. You should add -eons. An easier way to present that table would be like soMost ending in -ER like manger, ecouter, dancer, etc, are conjugated like this: take off the -R Chart: Je............do not change Tu............add -s Il/Elle/on...do not change Nous........add -ons Vous........add -z Ils/Elles....add -nt for some reason mine won't format... but I think you can still properly interpret it.
I believe 32no to be right here. The verb unconjugated is Manger, and then if you conjugate the verb you replace the "er" with the things he says, the e, es, ons, ez, and ent, then the words are correct. Mangeons is used very rarely, only in certain curcumstances, or so I believe.
it happens when you remove the ER and the G is with an A,U or O ( easy to remember with auto) Manger, Nous mang-E-ons., because O is a otherwise next to the G and then the pronunciation is changed so you have to add a E
Je mange Tu manges Il / Elle mange Nous mangons Vous mangez Ils / Elles mangont
