List of 100+ Common Regular French Verbs

 

Regular French verbs are among the most common verbs you will come across as you learn how to speak French. You’ll notice that regular verbs come in three types: verbs ending in -er, verbs ending in -ir, and verbs ending in -re.

To help you advance in your studies, here is a list of over 100 regular -ir, -re, and -er verbs in French.

Common Regular -Er Verbs in French

Here are the endings for regular -er verbs in French:

Je – e
Tu – es
Il/Elle – e
Nous – ons
Vous – ez
Ils/Elles – ent
Past Participle – é

To conjugate these verbs, remove the -er ending and add the appropriate ending for the subject of your sentence.

Common Regular -Ir Verbs in French

Here are the endings for regular -ir verbs in French:

Je – is
Tu – is
Il/Elle – it
Nous – issons
Vous – issez
Ils/Elles – issent
Past Participle – i

To conjugate these regular -ir verbs, just remove the -ir ending and add the ending that fits the subject of your sentence.

Common Regular -Re Verbs in French

Here are the endings for regular -re verbs in French:

Je – s
Tu – s
Il/Elle – 
Nous – ons
Vous – ez
Ils/Elles – ent
Past Participle – u

These verbs are conjugated by removing the -re ending and adding the correct ending from the list above. Please note that the il/elle forms of regular -re verbs don’t take an ending.

Don’t forget irregular French verbs matter, too. The best way to learn and master French verbs is to practice them every day. Try keeping a journal in French about your day. You can also work on learning one new French verb each day and practice writing sentences with it.

For help learning more advanced French, studying with a French tutor is the best way to get the personalized attention that you need to meet your language-learning goals. Bonne chance!

Thanks for this list; it's very useful! There are a couple of verbs on the RE list that aren't 100% regular though, like atteindre and apparaître

A lot of these verbs are in the wrong group. I found verbs in the second group that should be in the third.....
