The Imperfect Tense Verbs of the 3rd Group Lesson 3: Verbs ending in eindre, tendre, prendre, and crire

The verbs of the third group are called irregular verbs because they don’t follow the same conjugation as the verbs of the first and the second groups. Their conjugation varies according to their roots. In this lesson, we will study the verbs ending in “eindre”, “tendre”, “prendre”, and “crire”.
