French Verb Table

French Verb Table

I created this for my Y10 top set French class - I couldn't find anything like it online. My main language is Spanish so please let me know if there are any mistakes. I think it will be great for students to stick in their books. I always liked having concise '1-sheet' grammar tables when I was at school!
