To Listen: écouter
To Realise: réaliser
To Send: envoyer
To Sing: chanter
To Sweat: suer
To Swim: nager
To Threaten: menacer
To Throw: lancer

2004-11-07 [herrschneemann]: If you can think of a specific verb you would like to know in French, please ask here.

2004-11-07 [Death's Die-Ary]: i need help with verbs in the past,like passe compose. any verb would be fine

2004-11-07 [herrschneemann]: added some verbs

2004-11-07 [herrschneemann]: hmmm, that's a hard question to answer, because that is an entire lesson. Ok, for passé composé, the verb is composed two-wise: the verb plus an "auxilary" verb in front of it. Verbs will either use être (to be) or avoir (to have) as auxiliaries, none other are possible. For Passé Composé, you conjugate the auxiliary in the present tense, then add the participe passé of the verb you're using. Example: J'ai mangé (I ate), il est allé (he went), etc.

2004-11-08 [Death's Die-Ary]: ooh okay makes sense

2004-11-08 [herrschneemann]: Added more verbs

2004-11-17 [herrschneemann]: added a bunch of first group verbs

2005-03-28 [Blaithin]: parler is to speak right?

2005-03-28 [herrschneemann]: yes

2005-03-29 [Blaithin]: Alrighty, thank you :)

2005-03-29 [herrschneemann]: pleasure
