Passé Composé of Regular Verbs

Le Passé Composé Don’t be afraid of the passé composé!  It’s much easier than the present tense.  If you’re reading this post, you probably really want to learn French, and you already have an understanding of the present tense.  Perhaps you’re ready to begin talking about things that you’ve done, things that have happened, things that have had a definite beginning and ending?  If so, this means you’re ready to learn the PASSÉ COMPOSÉ (that’s just the simple past, by the way).  It’s called the PASSÉ COMPOSÉ because in French, the simple past is made up of two parts:  helping verb + past participle.  Read on and you’ll see that it’s really not that complicated at all! Download my comprehensive lesson on the French passé composé with avoir:  Video, lesson guide, exercises with answer keys, dictations with answer keys and a quiz Review of the verb AVOIR Conjugate «avoir» in the present tense As you’ve been learning French, I’m sure you’ve come across the verb “AVOIR“.  That means “TO HAVE”.  This verb is super important in forming the passé composé of regular verbs, because it will serve as your “helping verb”.  Do you need a quick review of the verb AVOIR?  Ok, here it is: j’ai                            I have                                                tu as                        you have                        ...
