There are three major groups of regular verbs in French: verbs with infinitives ending in -er , verbs with infinitives ending in -ir , and verbs with infinitives ending in -re. Since -er verbs are the most numerous, they are considered the first conjugation. To conjugate these verbs, drop the -er from the infinitive to form the stem. Next, add the -er endings to the stem.
