Mange and mange are two different conjugations, meaning if you want to say mange in a sentence, you would say Je mange. Manges goes with Tu mange

It's part of the er conjugation rule

I always get "mange", and "manges" mixed up! Pls help!

'Mange' is for il/elle/on/je: je mange (I eat) and il/elle/on mange (he/she/we eat). 'Manges' is for tu: tu manges (you [singular] eat).

Clarification: You might be thinking it's odd that 'on' means the same thing as 'nous'. (Or maybe you're not thinking that yet, but you definitely will!) This can be a bit puzzling, but basically both mean 'we.' 'On' takes the same form as il/elle, and 'nous' has its own form that usually ends with -ons (ex. 'mangeons').

"Mange" is first and third person singular for the present tense, and "manges" is second person (tu, not vous). Hope this helps!

what about "Je", and " Moi"? don't they both mean I?

September 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/dancepointe

'Je' means I and 'moi' means me. (Moi-même means myself.)

Edit: haha we all reply at once!

I believe only "Je" means "I", whereas "moi" means "me". :)

September 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/The_Angry_Mango

je means "I" and moi means "me"

September 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/MasterZsword

In terms of reflexive situations, you would say "me" (not English "me", but the French word "me") for referring to yourself.

Example: Je me lève. ---> I get up or I get myself up.

Si tu as besoin d'aider avec le futur, le conditionnel, ou l'imparfait, je peux t'aider. ^ ^ Ou, je peux t'aider avec autre choses.

Aussi, mon français n'est pas le meilleur, mais je ne suis pas terrible.

Hello I am also new at french! It's really fun! It can be confusing because you have to use le for male words and la for female and stuff like that so it's hard at times. But french is fun to learn also.

Salut, Ça va ? I used to use this website below It's a good site although a little slow if you're used to texting and IM. Most people on there will E-mail you back daily if not every other day at least, it's real french people as well so while they may not be fluent in English which can slightly hinder learning they can teach you about French culture which I think is important in it's own right. Let me know if you need anything else.

If linking to outside websites is not allowed I am sorry I couldn't find the rules, please delete it if so. https://www.mylanguageexchange.com/Pen-pals/Language/French.asp

what about suis? that word kind of confuses me.

October 10, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/dancepointe

'Suis' is the word for 'am' and comes after 'je' which means 'I'. Therefore, you might hear someone say, "Je suis anglais," which would mean "I am English."

Here is the conjugation of the verb être (to be): Je suis (I am) Tu es (you [singular] are) Il/elle/on est (he/she/we are) Nous sommes (we are) Vous êtes (you [plural or formal] are) Ils/elles sont (they [masculine]/ they [feminine] are)
