Look at the first group conjugation from this post. But specifically for the verb manger (to eat) :

  1. Je mange (I eat);
  2. Tu manges (you eat);
  3. Il, elle, on mange (he, she, it, one eats);
  4. Nous mangeons (we eat);
  5. Vous mangez (you eat, plural or formal);
  6. Ils, elles mangent (they eat).

    "Manges" is used with "tu" (tu manges), "mange" is used with "je" and "il/elle". It's like how we say "I run" but "he runS" in English, only the "s" isn't pronounced in French.

    So are mange and manges pronounced the same?

    It's all about conjugation! You can check under the "Tips and notes" of each skills page for grammar explanations. If you want a super-detailed chart:

    Actually, there are no Tips and Notes in French.
    I did see the Tips & Notes in Spanish and they are completely awesome!
    That link you provided is perfect- I use it myself. :-)

    Really? That sucks! There is about one in every two to three lessons in German and I wish there were more and they were more complete. But I feed my grammar cravings elsewhere on the web.

    It's all part of the ER verb endings. This is how I learned them: Take away the ER and add the correct ending (depending on the pronoun)

    Je > e Tu > es Il/Elle/On > e Nous > ons (for manger it becomes mangeons because otherwise it is the incorrect word) Vous > ez Ils/Elles > ent

    Je mange, Tu manges, Il/Elle mange. Just remember the "s" is used with "TU" Snooks

    So mange is for I, he, she, it, or one eats? Manges is only for you eat?

    December 8, 2016
