Regular ER verbs

TASK 1: Thinking about English


I eats a sandwich...

He go to bed...

They does the washing up...

We flies to Hawaii...


What is wrong with these 4 sentences?

The VERB endings are wrong! 


Write them out correctly, in English.


TASK 2: ER verbs

Many, many verbs in French end in ER in the dictionary. Match up these ER verbs with their English meanings:


1) changer

2) danser

3) jouer

4) regarder

5) écouter

6) chanter

7) penser


a) to dance

b) to watch

c) to listen

d) to change

e) to sing

f) to play

g) to think


They are all called ER verbs because... they all end in ER!


To use them, you have to change the endings. This is called CONJUGATING.
