a reprint of what I posted 8 months ago on Future Simple with -er, -ir

'rencontre' in the future in Horoscope de l'année

I wrote 'rencontrerez' for the future of the verb rencontre, & I got it right in the fill-in-the-blank exercise Horoscope de l'année (Le Futur); however, it doesn't seem to fit into the pattern for either regular -er and -ir verbs in the future or -re and -dre verbs in the future, and it directed me to this page, so I'm confused.

Hi Sydney,

I think the lack of the final -r  to the infinitive of the verb 'rencontrer'  ( to meet )  is what is throwing you.

 

"To form Le Futur (Simple) of regular -er or -ir verbs, you keep the infinitive form of the verb and then add the following endings: -ai, -as, -a, -ons, -ez, -ont "

taken from the following Kwiziq lesson -

Conjugate regular -er and -ir verbs in the future tense in French (Le Futur Simple)

It conjugates exactly the same as 'manger'.

Bonne continuation ?

The infinitive is rencontrer, not rencontre. ‘Rencontrer’ is a regular -er verb.  https://www.lawlessfrench.com/verb-conjugations/rencontrer/
