Help (Please!)

Salut! I don't understand why in French, it will say "Anna et Martin, vous cuisinez?" I don't get why there is a "z" at the end of every "vous" statement/question. Can someone please help me understand? Merci beaucoup!! :D

You are right that there is a "z" at the end of every "vous" statement/question.


You need to learn the conjugations. English doesn't have much conjugating, French does.

je cuisine ("I cook")

tu cuisines ("you cook", singular)

vous cuisinez ("you cook", plural)

    Because that is the standard conjugation for vous in the simple present!

    Something that I learned, for Imparfait only is a little ryhme: Imparfait, a-i-s, a-i-s, a-i-t, i-o-n-s, i-e-z, a-i-e-n-t Basically enumerates the ending in the order: Je, tu, il/elle/on, nous, vous, ils/elles
