Level B1 - Rentrer, Revenir, Retourner, Rendre

Some French verbs are more complicated than others for Anglophones. Such is the case with the verbs retourner, revenir and rentrer, and rendre.

French verbs: Rentrer - Revenir - Retourner - Rendre

This is a French grammar lesson in which you will learn many different ways to use these sometimes (often) difficult French verbs. Some verbs are more complicated than others for Anglophones. Such is the case with the verbs retourner, revenir and rentrer. All of these mean to return in one way or another, but they're not interchangeable.

While each of these French verbs does generally indicate someone going back to a place, they must each be used in a specific – and different – set of circumstances.
We will also talk about the verb rendre, which also means to return something.

I'm Jennifer, and I'm a French teacher. I didn't grow up speaking French. I started learning French as an adult, so I know exactly how frustrating it can be when just trying to listen and respond seems impossible. I was fortunate enough to have CARING teachers who helped me and never seemed to be frustrated with me. When I started teaching French 20+ years ago, I was again fortunate to have mentors who showed me that CARING about my students and understanding their difficulties is the only way to help. I've been exactly where you are, and I know how to help you.

I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French, then taught French for a year and moved to France for a year before pursuing and earning a Master of Arts degree in French. I taught French at Saint Louis University High School, a Jesuit college preparatory school for young men, for 14 years. A while before relocating to the South of France, I began teaching French online via Skype. I am now teaching French online full time and I also give immersion classes and guided city visits in both languages in Béziers, France.

It’s my job to guide you and help you along on your journey to learn French. Learning should be fun, and I will make sure that enjoy yourself as you improve your listening, writing, reading, and most importantly your speaking skills. Over the years I have developed many creative strategies to guarantee your progress. All students have different learning styles, different strengths and weaknesses, and different levels. One of my first jobs as your teacher is to provide you with an approach that will suit your learning style so that you will get the most out of your classes as possible.
