The French language is so rich with expressions, and it associates verbs specifically with certain nouns to form an expression. In English, one verb can be changed into so many different meanings with a preposition (to take in/ out/ after/ along/ apart/ away…). In French, those different meanings are achieved with a whole expression (prendre part à…) or a distinct verb (emporter, enmener, démonter, …).
But enough grammar for today, and let’s learn to say:
// exercer // first group verb: to exercise, to practise, to train, to carry out, to exert
Dr. Perrot exerce dans son cabinet en région parisienne depuis 23 ans. // Dr. Perrot has been practicing in his office in the Paris area for 23 years.
Quel métier exercez-vous? // What is your occupation?
Je vais m’exercer à la plongée sous-marine avant mon voyage aux Bahamas. // I am going to practice diving before my trip to the Bahamas.
And if you plan to work out today, I hope you get some good exercise!
