In French as in almost all other languages, each verb has to agree with the person through conjugation/declination. The conjugation in the present indicative tense is shown as follows for the regular verb ending in -er, such as parler, adorer, jouer, habiter, etc.
To conjugate, we remove the -er ending and replace with the following, according to the subject (person(s) doing the action):
-e (for first person singular, je, I)
-es (for second person singular, tu, you singular)
-e (for third person singular, il, elle, on, he, she, one,...)
-ons (for first person plural, nous, we )
-ez (for second person plural, vous, you)
-ent (for third person plural, ils, elles, they).
For example, for swimming, nager
"They swim" would be "Ils nagent.", figured out as follows:
Start from the infinitive form "nager",
1. Strip off -er to give the root "nag".
2. Choose the correct ending "-ent" for "they".
3. Attach the ending "-ent" to the root to give "nagent", and voilà.
So ils nagent.
In your work, #2,4,5 are correct, but you need to work on the rest. The way to make the corrections is shown above.
Oh, I completely forgot about that! Thank you so much. :)
1. Tu adores des livres.
3. David et Albert jouent football. (I'm struggling on this one)
6. Elles aime utilisent l'ordinateur.
Is that correct?
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
3. would be better if you add "au" to make " jouent au football".
6. Elles is considered third person plural, so an adjustment is needed.
When you have two verbs one following the other, it's the first one that needs to agree with the subject.
J'aime lire les romans. ( I like reading novels)
we have aimer and lire, it's the first one that you need to agree with the subject "je".
The second one will be left as infinitive.
So J'aime lire les romans.
So then would it be
Elles aimes utilisent l'ordinateur?
The first verb (aimer) has to agree with the subject (third person plural) in number, and the second verb (utiliser) will be left as infinitive.
