All e-er and é-er verbs take the è?

Would it make sense to just think of it as all e-er and é-er verbs (except jeter/appeler and derivatives) taking an è, rather than trying to remember all the exceptions? Or is using the double L/T on the ones that take it preferable?

Bonjour Harriet ! The reason why we divided it in three lessons is that: - as you wrote, all e-er and é-er take "è" BUT eter and eler verbs which have *different* exceptions - some eter and eler take only "ll" or "tt" - some eter and eler take only "èl" or "èt" I hope that makes it clearer! À bientôt !

I was thinking the same thing.....just group all the -eler and -eter verbs together and make the jeter/appeler verbs (+ derivatives) the exceptions - it seems much simpler and easier to remember to me.

Even though I appreciate the three lessons explaining everything in detail,  I would like to know if the "ll" and "tt" versions are considered the 'preferred' conjugations.
