It's a rather fun word and shouldn't be too difficult to remember. When you want to say "made angry" or "is angering," a verb conjugation is necessary. A quick French lesson will show you how that's done. Conjugating the French Verb Fâcher Fâcher is a regular -ER verb. It follows the most common verb conjugation pattern in the French language. What that means for you is that you can apply the endings you learn here to similar verbs like admirer (to admire) and blesser (to hurt). To change fâcher to the present, future, or imperfect past tense, pair the subject pronoun with the proper tense. The table demonstrates which verb ending is added to the stem fâch-. For instance, "I am angry" is "je fâche" while "we will be angry" is "nous fâcherons." Admittedly, "to make angry" is not the easiest English conjugation, so you need to do some interpretation within the translation itself. Subject Present Future Imperfect je fâche fâcherai fâchais tu fâches fâcheras fâchais il fâche fâchera fâchait nous fâchons fâcherons fâchions vous fâchez fâcherez fâchiez ils fâchent fâcheront fâchaient The Present Participle of Fâcher The present participle of fâcher is fâchant. This is done by adding -ant to the verb stem. Not only is this a verb, it can also become an adjective, gerund, or noun when needed. The Past Participle and Passé Composé The passé composé is a common form of the past tense "was angry" in French. To construct it, begin by conjugating the auxiliary verb avoir to fit the subject pronoun, then attach the past participle fâché. As an example, "I was angry" becomes "j'ai fâché" and "we were angry" is "nous avons fâché."
