1 Passé Composé avec Etre ou Avoir Ted Raymer

2 Passé Composé Passé composé is one of the French past tenses It is formed by combining the conjugated form of either être or avoir with the past participle of a verb For regularly conjugated past participles: – -ER verbs: change er to é – -IR verbs: change ir to i – -RE verbs: change re to u The past tenses of some verbs are formed irregularly, and must be memorized separately

3 Premier Check if the verb is Reflexive If it is, use être and go to the final step If it isnt, go to step two For example: Je me suis levé à six heures.

4 Deuxième Check to see if it is on the list (on the next slide) Dr. & Mrs. Vandertrampp If it is, go to step three If it is not, use avoir Examples: – Jai raté le bus. (Not on the list) – Je suis sorti avec mes copains. (On the list)

6 Troisième Check to see if the verb has an object after it If it does, use avoir If it doesnt use être and proceed to step four Example: – Le prof a rentré les interros. (les interros is an object) – Il est né hier.

7 Finalement If you are using être, you have to change the verb so that it agrees with the subject If the subject is feminine, add an e to the end of the verb If it is plural, add an s to the end For feminine plural subjects, add an es to the end Examples: – Elle est allée au cinéma. – Ils ne sont pas venus ce matin. – Elles sont entrées le châteaux.
