The language of France is one of the simplest languages you can speak. There are masculine and feminine words, making the suffixes easy (if you can remember them.)

http://french.about.com...

Pronominal verbs are verbs that need a reflexive pronoun in addition to a subject pronoun, because the subject(s) performing the action of the verb are the same as the object(s) being acted upon.

Nous nous habillons. We're getting dressed (dressing ourselves).
Tu te baignes. You're taking a bath (bathing yourself).

The basic words you need to know are je, tu, il, elle, nous, vous, ils and else. That means- I, you, he, she,we, you (plural), they (mas) and they (fem). It is simple once you get it.

The French verbs avoir (to have), "tre (to be), and faire (to do/make) are the most important French verbs. They are used in some of the ways that we use them in English as well as in many expressions. Conjugations for all three of these verbs are irregular verbs.

reflexive and irregular verbs have different rules applied to them compared to regular verbs. It sounds confusing now, but gradually, you will become more knowledgeable about the French language and be able to speak fluently. If you have any questions you can ask in the 'repost' or what ever you do.

Sorry, in the irregular verbs part. It says "tre. It is meant to be etre. In french though, there is a little ^ above the first e.
