tu    -es       vous    -ez
il/elle -e      ils/elles  -ent

je parle nous parlons
tu parles vous parlez

 ils/elles parlent

 Here is a video with a French speaker teaching the conjugation of PARLER



multiple verb sentence construction (p. 101)
When you have multiple verbs in a sentence, you conjugate the first verb, and leave the second verb in the infinitive.

     J’aime regarder la télé.                                                      Il n’aime pas jouer au foot. 
 (I don’t like (conjugated) to watch (infinitive) TV)  (He doesn’t like (conjugated) to play (infinitive) soccer

negation (ne…pas – sentences in the negative)
To make an affirmative (regular) sentence negative, you add ne…pas – see this page for review

adverbs  (p. 100)
Adverbs describe how much, how often, or how well you do something. They ALWAYS go after the conjugated verb, even if the verb has a ne…pas around it, the adverb goes right after that.
