‘Ranger’ (to tidy) 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 the ‘nous’ form to keep the soft ‘g’ sound: rang will become range. Here are a few examples:

    • Ranger sa chambre: to tidy one’s room
    • Ranger la maison: to tidy the house
