Bonjour Jane, Great question. The other common ones are écouter and chercher.

Merci Beaucoup, Laura: I was confused and thought descendre fell into that category. Is there a way I can take the final placement test before I decide if I want to join. I didn't realize I could only take 10. My mistake, but I continued to correct my few errors without realizing the number was reaching ten. BTW, I love your website and don't know what I would do without it. You offer so many ways to learn grammar plus interesting topics. Don't ever stop!!

Descendre has several meanings - to descend, to go downstairs, to go down. So yes, the last one falls into the "preposition is included" category.

it helps me as an english speaker to think of some of the verbs as having the preposition 'built in' thanks for the idea, now its a matter of remembering which ones:)
