French Verb Race Games

French Verb Race Games For French teachers and groups of friends who practice French together. VERB RACE – TEACHER LED Divide the class into three teams so that each student gets to go up to the board several times.  Have teams 1, 2 and 3 sit in groups so that each student clearly knows who plays before and after him. You may wish to allow them to change spots from time to time so that they’re not consistently playing against the same person who may or may not be a “better” player. Object of the game:  One student from each group goes up to the board with a dry erase marker or chalk in hand. As soon as all 3 students are lined up at the board, the teacher calls out a subject pronoun and the infinitive form of the verb to be conjugated in the appropriate tense. Everyone can keep trying to write the correct answer until someone gets it right or one minute has passed. Would you like to take a test to know what your current level is in French? Answers are written on each card to help you, the teacher, keep track of what is going on since this game moves fast. Once you have called out the subject pronoun and infinitive to be conjugated students can start writing. The first student who correctly writes the conjugated verb on the board earns a point for his team. Students keep track of their team’s points directly on the board where everyone can see them.  Important:  The spelling of the verb must be perfect and that includes...

French Past Conditional: Would have been, Could have been, Should have been

French Past Conditional:  Would have been, Could have been, Should have been Scroll down to the bottom of this post to watch a video tutorial on the French past conditional. Use the French past conditional when you want to say what would, could, or should have happened. If you know how to form the passé composé, forming the French past conditional will be a breeze.  In the passé composé one of the most important things to remember is when to use avoir as helping verb as opposed to using être as helping verb.  The same is true when forming the past conditional.  To form the past conditional you follow all of the passé composé rules.  The only difference is that you need to put the helping verb ÊTRE or AVOIR in the conditional. Conditional forms of ÊTRE and AVOIR Formation of the past conditional + examples: ÊTRE, VOIR, SORTIR et SE COUCHER Would have been + examples Could have been + examples Should have been + examples Past conditional with power verbs:  VOULOIR, POUVOIR et DEVOIR French Past conditional downloadable PDF support guide Conditional forms of ÊTRE and AVOIR Practice using the past conditional with this online exercise:  Texas Bob Past Conditional ÊTRE                                                                                                         AVOIR Je serais J’aurais Tu serais Tu aurais Il serait Il aurait Nous serions...

Present French Conditional

Present French Conditional Scroll down to the bottom of this page to view the video tutorial on the Present French Conditional The present French conditional is used to express “would, should, could”.  Just like in English, using the conditional tense means that something is only going to happen if a certain condition is met.   Present French conditional in a nutshell:  would / should / could Would do something Use the MAIN VERB in the conditional Si j’étais en France, J’APPRENDRAIS le français. If I were in France, I would learn French. Could do something Use the verb POUVOIR in the conditional + infinitive Si j’étais en France, JE POURRAIS APPRENDRE le français. If I were in France, I could learn French. Should do something Use the verb DEVOIR in the conditional + infinitive JE DEVRAIS APPRENDRE le français. I should learn French. To form the conditional, usually just use the infinitive of the verb, and add the IMPERFECT endings.  There are some irregular conditional stems.  They’re exactly the same as the irregular stems for the SIMPLE FUTURE tense (see the chart below).
