How to Conjugate the 4 most used French Verbs; Avoir, être, faire, and aller.

First note: All 4 of these are irregular verbs. That means they conjugate independent from the conjugation system. You have to memorize the way the verbs work.

Je- I Tu- You (informal) Il/Elle/On -He/She/One (Reason they are together is because verbs conjugate the same way for them Nous- We Vous- You (formally or plurally, like "you guys") Ils/Elles- They

Avoir- To have (Most used verb in the french language) J'ai Tu as Il/Elle/On a Nous avons Vous avez Ils/Elles ont Note that to say "I have", you would put J'ai instead of Je ai because two vowels can not be next to each other. être- To be Je suis Tu es Il/Elle/On est Nous sommes Vous êtes Ils/Elles Sont

Faire- To make, to do Je fais Tu fais Il/Elle/On fait Nous faisons Vous faites Ils/Elles font

Aller-to go Je vais Tu vas Il/Elle/On va Nous allons Vous allez Ils/Elles vont

Could you add other verb forms, e.g. subjunctive forms?


Could you add line breaks, je suis muy confused
