¨ Examples : Nathan joue de la flûte → jouer
Charlotte fait du théâtre. → faire

The first group : It usually includes the verbs ending in –ER ( except the verb ALLER which has many exceptions and belongs to the 3rd group)
Aimer, balayer, chanter, envoyer, fermer, manger, passer, payer, promener, regarder, etc.
The second group : the verbs ending in –IR and ALSO in –ISSANT for their Present Participle
Bénir, compatir, déguerpir, fleurir, grandir, haïr, investir, polir, rougir, rugir, salir, etc.
- The third group : it contains all the other verbs, those which are irregular , the verbs ending in –IR ( but with a different conjugation from the 2nd group) , the verbs ending in –OIR or –RE and the verb ALLER
Conduire, connaître, dire, dormir, exclure, faire, mettre, plaindre, prendre, résoudre, savoir, vivre, etc.
