Before we learn about how to use conditionals in French, let’s first find out exactly what they are.
What is the Conditional Tense?
Simply put, the conditional is a verb form which is used to talk about anything that could happen in the future. It is also used when talking about something that’s guaranteed to happen but only under specific circumstances.
Let’s take a look at examples in English first:
- It would cool down if you placed it in a refrigerator.
- Bu süveter olmasa üşürdün.
Note: the English modal verb “would” is conditional and is also written in its shortened form ” ‘d ” and placed before the verb.
In French however, there is a different set of rules to remember. The good news is that if you’re familiar with the Future tense, the Conditional will be a breeze!
Using the Conditional Tense in French:
The conditional is used in the same instances in both French and English:
- While asking politely or formally
ie. Would you pass the newspaper, please? – Pourrais-tu me passer le journal, s’il te plaît?
- While expressing the requirement or liking for something
ie. I would love to have a cup of tea, please. – J’aimerais avoir une tasse de té, s’il vous plait.
- While suggesting something
ie. We could go to a movie and have fun. – Nous pourrions aller au ciné et nous amuser.
- While advising someone
ie. You should admit that you made a mistake. – Tu devrais admettre que tu t’es trompé
- While role-playing, imaginary or not
ie. I would be the teacher, and you would be the student. – Moi je serais le prof, et toi tu serais l’élève.
- While gently nagging or complaining
ie. You could wash the dishes instead of watching the TV. – Vous pourriez faire la vaisselle au lieu de regarder la television.
- While using “even if” or “in case of” clauses.
ie. Even if you have 20 bucks, you’d be able to buy some candies. – Meme si tu avais 20 euros, tu pourrais acheter des bonbons.
Forming the Conditional Tense: the key rules
Usually, when verbs are in their conditional form they are comprised of an infinitive (used as the stem) + an ending.
The stem used in the conditional is the same as the one used in the gelecek zaman, which is the infinitive form of the verb. The conditional uses the following endings: -ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez ve -aient. If you’re familiar with the Imperfect tense in French, you’ll notice the endings are the same.
1. -er ve -ir sonlu normal fiiller:
Here, we’re using the same verb stem as the future tense (the verb’s infinitive form) and adding the right ending to it. Let’s take a closer look with some examples:
|Konu||Bitirme||-er fiiller||-ir fiiller|
When a regular -er verb ends either in -eler or –eter, the consonants “l” and “t” are doubled. This rule has some exceptions such as geler (to freeze), peler (to peel) and acheter (to buy).
|zamir||Örnek fiil: appeler|
In the case of verbs ending in -yer, the “y” changes to “i”.
|zamir||Örnek fiil: nettoyer|
2. Koşullu düzensiz fiiller için kurallar
The irregular verbs are the same in the conditional tense as they are in the future tense: this includes verbs such as être, faire, aller, devoir, pouvoir, savoir, tenir, venir, voir, vouloir.
Here are some examples of what these irregular verbs look like in their conditional form:
|Mastar||Gelecek kök||Koşullu sonlar||Koşullu form|
|avoir||aur-||-ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez, -aient||j’aurais, tu aurais, il/elle/on aurait, nous aurions, vous auriez, ils/elles auraient|
|être||ser-||-ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez, -aient||je serais, tu serais, il/elle/on serait, nous serions, vous seriez, ils/elles seraient|
|faire||fer-||-ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez, -aient||je ferais, tu ferais, il/elle/on ferait, nous ferions, vous feriez, ils/elles feraient|
|aller||ir-||-ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez, -aient||j’irais, tu irais, il/elle/on irait, nous irions, vous iriez, ils/elles iraient|
- The conditional endings are -ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez, ve –aient (same as the imperfect endings)
- The conditional stem is the same as the future tense stem
- Düzenli -er ve -ir are formed with: Stem+ appropriate ending.
- Irregular verbs are the same in the conditional tense as they are in the future tense
