French grammar: Sequence of tenses.
|Download Temps desktop application (Windows 64bit)||Download Temps source code (Lazarus/Free Pascal)|
Description: French grammar exercise generator, dealing with the sequence of tenses ("concordance des temps"): For a given
tense of the expression in the principal sentence and knowing when the action in the subordinate sentence (in comparison to the one in the principal)
happens, find the tense of the verb in the subordinate sentence. As the first question to do this kind of exercises, is to determine the mode of
the verb in the subordinate sentence (depending on the expression in the principal), the application may also be used as an indicative/subjunctive
There are 2 ways to answer the exercise questions (that may be selected in the "Options" menu):
- Using the "tenses buttons", to simply indicate the tense to be used in the subordinate.
- Entering the conjugated form of the verb in the subordinate, with the mode and tense as appropriate.
Help with French grammar (usage of indicative or subjunctive, as well as the sequence of tenses), and help concerning the program (in French as the application itself) is included.
Note: For some expressions with indicative in an affirmative sentence, I'm not really sure about the mode to be used in the
negative sentence. Thanks, for reporting any grammar mistakes, by sending me a mail.
