French conjugation is not your forte and you sometimes have trouble conjugating a verb? You’re confused with regular vs irregular verbs? Présent, passé composé, futur simple (…everything but simple)? I get it!
In the last few months, I’ve been helping my 10-year old son with his French verbs conjugation. Though we speak French at home, it’s a struggle for him. You might be struggling too. Let me share with you how the web can help.
- ConjugArt is a free tool available on the Translation Bureau website. This easy-to-use platform will give you the conjugation of over 8,000 verbs. Simply type any verb in the search bar, like “aller”, “avoir”, or “conjuguer” for example, and you’ll get their conjugation for all tenses – présent, passé composé, futur simple, etc. – at your fingertips.
- Also, did you know that there’s actually a book called French Grammar for Dummies? This book, among other things, has a section designated to French verbs conjugation. This section covers both regular verbs (like “aimer”) and irregular verbs (like “avoir”).
- French Today also wrote a great article called The Secret to Mastering French Verb Congugation . In this article, the author gives a series of tips used by teachers to help students with congugation. If this works for students, it can work for you too!
Getting familiar with those tools to help you conjugate is a great way to start. For the rest, namely the translation of your year-end report, your fabulous website or your book, please don’t rely on a search bar in a translation-bot. Reach out to me!
