Verb[edit]

réussir

  2. (intransitive) to pass (a test)

Usage notes[edit]

Because this verb is intransitive, it takes an indirect object. This means that this verb is usually followed by à.

Conjugation[edit]

  • This is a regular verb of the second conjugation, like finir, choisir, and most other verbs with infinitives ending in -ir. One salient feature of this conjugation is the repeated appearance of the infix -iss-.
