When to Make Agreement in the Passé Composé

When to Make Agreement in the Passé Composé

French verbs are conjugated in the passé composé either with avoir or être as their auxiliary verbs.

When using être as an auxiliary verb, past participles need to agree with their subjects in number and gender.

When using avoir as an auxiliary verb, you usually don’t need to make agreement with the subject.  However, there are specific times when avoir verbs require agreement.

If you want a very comprehensive passé composé quiz using both être and avoir as auxiliary verbs, with and without agreement, try out this one.  This is not a beginner level quiz.
