Let’s look into how to form this tricky tense! As its name indicates it, it is a compound tense, made of two elements! So whenever you think passé composé, think two! A pair! A couple! Lovebirds! Whatever helps you remember!

1. HOW TO FORM THE PASSÉ COMPOSÉ WITH “AVOIR”

In most cases, verbs conjugated in the passé composé are going to be made of:

 AVOIR IN THE PRESENT TENSE + THE PAST PARTICIPLE OF THE CONJUGATED VERB

Ok, now you finally have all the elements to form the PASSÉ COMPOSÉ! Here are examples of conjugated verbs:

PARLER                                            CHOISIR                                  VOULOIR
J’ai parlé                                                J’ai choisi                                      J’ai voulu
Tu as parlé                                             Tu as choisi                                  Tu as voulu
Il/Elle/On a parlé                                Il/Elle/On a choisi                      Il/Elle/On a voulu
Nous avons parlé                                 Nous avons choisi                       Nous avons voulu
Vous avez parlé                                    Vous avez choisi                          Vous avez voulu
Ils/Elles ont parlé                                Ils/Elles ont choisi                      Ils/Elles ont voulu

Got it? Great, you’ve learned half the lesson on the compound tense since there is a list of verbs that are gonna be conjugated with ÊTRE instead of AVOIR… I know, never easy! Hang in there and practice this first part of the lesson until you’re ready for the second part! Good luck!
