As you know, verbs are the words we use to describe things we ‘do’, things we ‘have done’ and things we ‘will do’. To differentiate between the past, present and future we have to use different tenses. In this quiz we look at how to use some French verbs in the past, present and future tenses. The more often you see these in action, the better prepared you will be for tests and exams. Have a go at this quiz and see how many answers you know. It’s a great way to learn and to revise French.
