Practise the imperfect tense of 'semiregular' verbs

(If you're not sure, see the first page for instructions on how to use this exercise tool.)

In this exercise, you'll practice the imperfect tense of so-called "semiregular" -er verbs. These are verbs that have a slight spelling or pronunciation change in certain forms of the present tense. For example, acheter becomes j'achète; commencer becaomes nous commençons.


  • For singular 'you', the tu form is required, and vous for the plural.
  • Not all of these verbs have a spelling change in the imperfect tense!
