The Present Simple. Verbs of the Third Group with the roots: battre, tenir, courir, and cueillir


There are three groups of verbs in French:

The first group: The verbs end in “er” and follow the same conjugation except for “aller” which is a verb of the 3rd group.

The second group: This group comprises all verbs that end in “ir” and which their present participle ends in “issant” For example: finir is a verb of the second group because it ends in “ir” and its present participle ends in “issant” : finissant

The third group: comprises all the other verbs. We also call them “irregular verbs” because they don’t follow any specific conjugation. For example: prendre, tenir, voir, etc.

The verbs of the third group don’t follow any specific rule. That’s why we call them “verbes irréguliers” . Their conjugation varies depending on the verb. We will try to classify them according to their terminaisons or their racines.
