|Les verbes en -ir
Verbs with infinitives ending in -ir form a second group of regular verbs in French, often called ‘second conjugation’ verbs. To conjugate these verbs, drop the -ir from the infinitive and add the second conjugation present tense endings: -is, -is, -it, -issons, -issez, -issent. The singular and plural forms of the third person are clearly distinguishable (finit vs.finissent).
finir ‘to finish’
|je finis||nous finissons|
|tu finis||vous finissez|
|il/elle/on finit||ils/elles finissent|
|past participle : fini|
