Guys can y'all give me tips on how to learn all the crap bout passé compose bcus I've got an exam next Monday and there's a whole section on it !!
Remember the past tense verbs that take avoir as MRSVANDERTRAMP:
Monter --> monté (went up)
Retourner --> retourné (returned)
Sortir --> sorti (went out)
Venir --> venu (came)
Arriver --> arrivé (arrived)
Naître --> né (was born)
Descendre --> descendu (went down)
Entrer --> entré (entered)
Rester --> resté (stayed)
Tomber --> tombé (fell)
Rentrer --> rentré (went back in)
Aller --> allé (went)
Mourir --> mort (died)
Partir --> parti (left)
The rest are Etre verbs.
Evan it's the other way round. Those verbs take Etre (as well as every Reflexive verb) but all the rest take Avoir.
J'ai fait - I did
Je suis tombé - I fell (NOT J'ai tombé)
just remember them by MR TRAMPS RED VAN
-ER goes to é
-IR goes to i
-RE goes to u
what is MR TRAMPS RED VAN
