Infinitif means when a verb is not conjugated such as to eat, to see, to visit…

In French, to make a sentence for the near future, you use “je vais + infinitif’. The infinitif is at the end of French verbs, meaning that the ending of the verb tells you if the verb is conjugated or not. We have three main endings in french: Verbs ending in -ER, in -IR, -in RE such as

Je vais nager (I am going to swim)

Je vais dormir (I am going to sleep)

Je vais répondre (I am going to reply)
