Etre With Passe Compose

  1. 1. Passé Composé with Etre <ul><li>You already know how to form the Passé Composé tense. Here is a reminder: </li></ul>Past participle Part of avoir <ul><li>Use part of the present tense of Avoir </li></ul><ul><li>Then add the past participle of the verb you want to put into the past </li></ul>Eg Il a regardé Nous avons joué
  2. 2. BUT one group of 14 verbs use the present tense of Etre instead. <ul><li>MOST verbs use part of Avoir to form the passé composé. </li></ul>Here is that list
  3. 3. List of Verbs which use Etre to form their Passé Composé <ul><li>M onter V enir D escendre </li></ul><ul><li>R ester A ller E ntrer </li></ul><ul><li>S ortir N aître R etourner </li></ul><ul><li> T omber R entrer </li></ul><ul><li>A rriver </li></ul><ul><li>M ourir P artir </li></ul>These verbs are usually known as the “ MRS VAN DER TRAMP” verbs.
  4. 4. 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) e s
