Another important thing to know about the verb VENIR! Whenever you use the prep DE after the verb VENIR in the present tense, you end up with another tense: THE RECENT PAST.Oh la la, Hollywood Speaks French

VENIR (present) + DE + INFINITIVE = RECENT PAST

Ex. Soso vient d’arriver chez sa soeur. (Soso has just arrived at her sister’s.)

You could also find the same structure in the past. The magic formula then becomes: 

Ex. Soso venait d’arriver chez sa soeur. (Soso had just arrived at her sister’s.)
