2 Passé Composé with Etre You already know how to form the Passé Composé tense. Here is a reminder: Past participle Part of avoir Use part of the present tense of Avoir Then add the past participle of the verb you want to put into the past Eg Il a regardé Nousavons joué

3 BUT one group of 14 verbs use the present tense of Etre instead. MOST verbs use part of Avoir to form the passé composé. Here is that list

4 List of Verbs which use Etre to form their Passé Composé Monter VenirDescendre Rester AllerEntrer SortirNaîtreRetourner Tomber Rentrer Arriver Mourir Partir These verbs are usually known as the MRS VAN DER TRAMP verbs.

5 When the passé composé is formed with Etre, the past participle behaves like an adjective. So, if you have a feminine subject (the doer of the verb), you must also have a feminine past participle. Eg Elle est allé (feminine)e If the subject is plural, the past participle must also be plural. Eg Ils sont allé (masculine plural)s Il est allé (masculine) BUT Elles sont allé (feminine plural)eses
