The Perfect Tense
The perfect tense is used to describe events that happened in the past. These events are completed actions which means that they are over and done with. eg. Jai joué au foot = I played football The perfect tense is formed with the auxiliary verbs avoir and être + the past participle. Most verbs go with avoir (jai)
Most verbs make the past participle by using these regular patterns: -er verbs: + é jou(er) joué -re verbs: + u répond(re) répondu -ir verbs: + i fin(ir) fini
To show WHO did the action in the past you use the correct form of AVOIR in front of your main verb Eg: Jai joué=I played Il a joué=he played
The auxiliary: AVOIR I, you, he/she/it, we, you, they Jaitu as Il/elle/on ails/elles ont Vous avez Nous avons
