"Est-ce que tu me pardonnes ?"

Translation:Do you forgive me?

April 1, 2018



I feel as if "Are you forgiving me?" is not a commonly used English phrase, we often say "do you forgive me," put it in the past tense, "have you forgiven me?," even during present tense arguments.


Why does pardonnes have an "s"


It is a matter of conjugation. The regular -er verb "pardonner" takes an s for the second person singular.

je pardonne
tu pardonnes
il/elle pardonne
