These sheets are an introduction to simple verb tenses using common vocabulary words.

In a linguist sense French and English are very similar languages. They are both based on the subject, verb, object sentence structure languages. In English, this is where these elements appear in that order (subject-verb-object) of a well composed sentence. While the sentence structure is similar in French, the verb and object switch places. So French sentence structure would more correctly be termed a subject, object, verb. In English we usually see adjectives placed before the nouns that they describe, but in French you will find that adjectives trail the nouns they are connected with. Being from Quebec, I had the advantage of learning both languages at about the same time. People that grow up learning English and transition to French often tell me that French grammar is very gender driven, meaning that just about every noun pretty much has gender aspect to it. In English there are pronouns that mostly encompass gender.

These French grammar worksheets will help students learn how to use verbs and future tense to make your sentence grammatically correct and well driven to the point. There is some translating you may need to do as well. We would encourage you to write a few sentences on your own to make sure they get their due. Your students will begin to learn how to conjugate French verbs based on singular and plural pronouns in past, present, and future tenses. In most cases, the pronouns are provided along with blanks for the student to enter the correct verb form. In other sheets, the conjugations are provided and the student must translate them into English phrases with the correct tenses. Memorizing verb constructions and tense conjugations is one of the biggest stumbling blocks to anyone learning a new language. Practice definitely helps.
