‘Promener’ (to walk) in the present tense in French

    ‘Promener’ means ‘to walk’ and is ‘almost’ a regular -ER verb in French, therefore it will use the regular endings -e, -es, -e, -ons, -ez, -ent but the stem will change for a few of them (Je, tu, il, elle, on, ils, elles) to make it easier to pronounce: promen will become promèn. Here are a few examples:

    • Promener le chien: to walk the dog
    • Promener les enfants: To walk children
