1 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-1 Point de départ In Leçon 6A, you learned to form the passé composé with avoir. Some verbs, however, form the passé composé with être.

2 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-2 To form the passé composé of these verbs, use a present-tense form of être and the past participle of the verb that expresses the action.

3 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-3 Many of the verbs that take être in the passé composé, involve motion. You have already learned a few of them: aller, arriver, descendre, partir, passer, rentrer, sortir, and tomber.

4 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-4 The past participles of verbs conjugated with être agree with their subjects in number and gender.

5 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-5 To make a verb negative in the passé composé, place ne/n’ and pas around the auxiliary verb, in this case, être.

6 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-6 Here are a few more verbs that take être instead of avoir in the passé composé.

7 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-7 Note that the verb passer takes être when it means to pass by, but it takes avoir when it means to spend time.

8 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-8 To form a question using inversion in the passé composé, invert the subject pronoun and the conjugated form of être.

9 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-9 Place short adverbs such as déjà, encore, bien, mal, and beaucoup between the auxiliary verb être or pas and the past participle.

10 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.7A.1-10 Essayez! Choisissez le participe passé approprié. 1. Vous êtes (nés/né) en 1959, Monsieur? 2. Les élèves sont (partis/parti) le 2 juin. 3. Les filles sont (rentrées/rentrés) de vacances. 4. Simone de Beauvoir est-elle (mort/morte) en 1986? 5. Mes frères sont (sortis/sortie). 6.
