Conjugation of verbs

Why is it that the 'nous' form of the verb "finir" is conjugated as "finissons" but the 'nous' form of the verb "regrossir" is conjugated as"regrossissons"?

Bonjour Emediong,

When using the subject pronoun "nous", -ir verbs in Le Présent, such as "finir" (= to finish) or "regrossir" (= to put on weight again), take the following ending: -issons

finir  fin + issons → finissons  -  regrossir → regross + issons → regrossissons

I hope this is helpful. 

Bonne journée !
