Year 7 – Être

Bonjour! Last week we looked at the verb AVOIR, so this week we’re working on another important irregular verb, which is ÊTRE (to be). Again last week proved very productive! We are proud to showcase some of the work emailed to teachers. Keep up the good work and please continue to email us at 🙂. Be as creative as you want and remember to email us pictures of your delicious French food too!

Un bandit entre dans une maison. Il prend la télévision, des bijoux, de l’argent. Quand il part, un enfant lui demande: “Tu peux prendre mon bulletin scolaire aussi ?” Mdr!! 😀


ETRE is the most useful verb in French language and it is an irregular verb. So you’ll need to learn it, memorise it and practise it as much as possible to use it confidently and accurately.

Now let’s have a look at ETRE paradigm (the letters underlined in red are totally SILENT).



Now it’s your turn to practise what you have learnt! (download the worksheet and complete the tasks, then download the answers to check).
