The Kwiz linked to this lesson had the question: "Ce jour-là, Marie découvrit la vérité"
It seems a bit illogical to class découvrir as a regular -ir verb, because it isn’t one in the present (even if it behaves as such in the passé simple).
Thank you for your comment! We discussed this point within the team and made a few changes in the lesson to avoid any ambiguity.
Merci et bonne journée !
Hi Anne, why do you say that découvrir does not behave as a regular -ir verb in the present tense?
je découvretu découvresil/elle/on découvrenous découvronsvous découvrezils/elles découvrent
Hi Chris, I just meant it isn’t a typical Group 2 -ir verb like finir or choisir. Kwiziq describes it elsewhere on the site as irregular in the present because it’s conjugated like an -er verb.
Conjugate ouvrir/découvrir and derivatives in the present tense in French (Le Présent)
