  1. Le conditionnel présent, et conditionnel passé
  2.  
  3. The conditional present and conditional past are very similar to words pairings of "would" and a "verb". For example, 'I would eat' and 'Je mangerais' have the same meaning. The conditional past, as the name suggests, has the same uses as the conditional present, but refers to something in the past. Ex 'J'avais mangé' is the same as 'I would have eaten.'
  4.  
  5. "Could, should and would"
  6.  
  7. When using the word could in English it can be one of two tenses, past and the English equivalent of the conditionnel tense.
  8.  
  9. a) When I was young, I could do this exercise
  10. b) Could you help me tomorrow?
  11.  
  12. Identifying the tense can be difficult, to make things easier, try changing out the verb can with the words to be able to.
  13.  
  14. a) When I was young I was able to do this exercise
  15. b) Would you be able to help me tomorrow?
  16.  
  17. Now it is clear that a) occurs in the past, and therefore should be translated using pouvoir in imparfait; we know this is true due to the use of the word 'was.' Conversely, b) should be translated into pouvoir with conditionnel.
  18.  
  19. When using the word would, it is more polite to do conjugate it in the conditionnel tense versus another. It is similar so saying 'I would like something' versus 'I want something'; the latter is more demanding and in certain tones can sound rude.
  20.  
  21. For example
  22. Je lui ai demandé poliment, mais il n'a pas voulu le faire
  23. I asked politely, but he didn't want to do it
  24.  
  25. Je lui ai demandé poliment, mais il n'a pas voulu le faire
  26. I asked politely, but he wouldn't do it
  27.  
  28. When using the word should in French, simply take the conditionnel form of devoir. Remember that when using devoir in other tenses it translates along the lines of 'to have to'.
  29.  
  30. Je devrais faire mes devoirs
  31. I should do my homework
  32.  
  33. Je doit faire mes devoirs
  34. I have to do my homework
  35.  
  36. Comment on utilise le conditionnel présent et passé
  37.

  39. 2. Prochain, conjuguez le verbe en le future simple et enlevez les terminaison.
  40. 3. Finalement, écrivez le nouvelle terminaison
  41.  
  42. Les choix sont
  43.

  45. il/elle - ait
  46. nous - ions
  47. vous - iez
  48. ils/elles - aient
  49.  
  50. Si tu veut conjugez un verbe en conditionnel passe tu devras faire les prochain étapes.
  51.  
  52. 1. Premier choisissez un verbe
  53. 2. Prennez le verbe auxiliaire (avoir ou être) pour le verbe quand il est dans le passe compose
  54. 2. Prochain, conjuguez le verbe auxiliaire en le future simple et remplacer le terminaisons avec les terminaisons expliqué au-dessus.
