How to Conjugate the French Verb "Agréer" (to Agree)

You Will "Agree" That Conjugating "Agréer" Is Easy

As you might expect, the French verb agréer means "to agree." The translation is easy and conjugating it to fit a sentence is pretty simple as well because it follows a common verb conjugation pattern.

Conjugating the French Verb Agréer

Agréer is a regular -er verb. This means that it follows the same conjugation rules as other verbs that end in -er, such as admirer (to admire) and attacher (to attach).

You will find that what you learn for the conjugation of one of these verbs can be applied to the others.

To conjugate agréer, use the chart to match the subject pronoun -- the j', tu, nous, etc. -- with the appropriate tense. For example, "I agree" is "j'agrée" and "we will agree" is "nous agréerons."

At first, concentrate on the present, future, and passé composé conjugations as you will use these most often.


Agréer and the Present Participle

The present participle of agréer is agréant. Notice how we simply changed the -er ending to -ant. This can be used as a verb, though you may also find it useful as an adjective, gerund, or noun in certain circumstances.

The Passé Composé and Past Participle

To form the passé composé of agréer and express "agreed," you will need to construct a short phrase in French.

This is done with the auxiliary verb avoir, which needs to be conjugated to fit the subject. You will then use the past participle of agréé for every subject.

For example, "I agreed" becomes "j'ai agréé."

More Agréer Conjugations

There are a few more agréer conjugations that you may need to know. While the passé simple and imperfect subjunctive are primarily for formal writing, the other two are in common use.

Use the subjunctive verb mood when you want to express that someone's agreement is not certain. The conditional also implies a degree of ambiguity as it's used when the act of agreeing is dependent on something.

When you want to use the imperative to quickly express a request or command, you can skip the pronoun. For instance, rather than say "tu agrée," you can just use "agrée."
