Two conjugated verbs simultaneously ?

L’année qui commence promet être.....

Aren’t there two conjugated verbs( commence and promet) simultaneously? 

Should not we say l’année qui commence promettre être.... ?

Hi Manpreet Kaur,

This is just as in English -

L'année qui commence = The year that's starting /the coming year

promet d'être promises to be 

The verb promettre is the first verb that agrees with the subject 'l'année qui commence'. The second verb takes the infinitive.

Also, note the 'de' before être.

Bonne Continuation!
