Ex : J’appelle ma soeur
I am calling my sister

The verbs appeler and jeter double the letter l or the letter t before the silent e.

Ex : Va-t’en ! Je ne veux plus te voir !
Go away! I don't want to see you anymore!

In the affirmative imperative, the structure is: verb + pronoun.

Ex : Il résoudra le problème rapidement.
He will solve the problem quickly.

Courons is conjugated in the present tense.
Courrons is conjugated in the futur tense.

Ex : Nous courons vers la sortie.
We are running toward the exit.

Ex : Nous courrons ensemble demain, pour le plaisir.
We will run together tomorrow, for fun.

Ex : Partir au Sahara
Going to the Sahara

Partir is a 3rd group verb.
You can know if a verb is a 2nd group verbs with this: if the present participle is -issant so it’s a 2nd group verbs.

Here are some examples of 2nd group verbs:
Choisir → choisissant
Grandir → grandissant
Finir → finissant

Ex : J’enverrai une lettre à mes parents.
I will send a letter to my parents.

When we conjugate a verb in -er in the future tense, we keep the infinitive and add the endings: ai, as, a, ons, ez, ont.
The verb envoyer is an irregular verb, so we write it with a double r.
Tu enverras
Il/elle enverra
Nous enverrons
Vous enverrez
Ils/elles enverront

Ex : Cet homme nettoie la cour.
This man is cleaning the yard.

For the verbs that ends with –oyer, the letter y becomes i before a silent e.
Je nettoie
Tu nettoies
Il nettoie
Nous nettoyons
Vous nettoyez
Ils nettoient

Ex : Je courrais si le chien m’avait menacé.
I would run if the dog threatened me.

In the future and conditional tenses, the verbs that take a double r are: courir, mourir, pouvoir, voir et envoyer.  

Ex : Il peint dans son atelier.
He is painting in his studio.

The verb with the ending -dre: they keep the ending letter d at the 3rd person of the singular.   
Ex : Vendre (to sell) → il vend
Prendre (to take) → il prend

The verb with the ending -indre: they have the ending letter t at the 3rd person of the singular.   
Ex : Craindre (to fear) → il craint
Rejoindre (to join) → il rejoint

Il mourrait = conditional present tense.

The verb mourir (to die) conjugated in the past tense (imparfait):
Je mourais
Tu mourais
Il/elle mourait
Nous mourions
Vous mouriez

Ils mouraient
