recevoir – French expression

recevoir - French expression

frenchhour

What does the French expression ‘ recevoir mean? How is it used in a sentence? Listen to Anne’s audio.

Most of you probably know recevoir as to receive. And that's correct. However, where would I be if French was that easy. Today, I want to focus on recevoir as "having guests". Just recevoir, not even recevoir des invités.

  • « Ils ne peuvent pas venir ce soir. Ils reçoivent. »
  • "They can't come tonight. They have guests."

recevoir is an irregular verb.

Tenses and Modes

présent : je reçois , nous recevons

passé composé : j'ai reçu , nous avons reçu

futur : je recevrai, nous recevrons
