2 Le passé composé The composite past tense in French Peinture par Raoul Dufy.

3 Le passé composé Hier, j’ai mangé. Aujourd’hui je mange.

4 In order to form the passé composé, it is necessary to know the verbs être and avoir, since you will use these verbs as auxiliaries, onto which you will add the past participles of other verbs. We do much the same thing in English when we form the perfect tense: I have eaten. auxiliary You have swept. past participle

5 Up until now we have learned to conjugate –ER, –IR, and –RE verbs in the present tense. We did touch upon –OIR verbs, but the occurrence of these is fairly rare. MARCHER Je march-e Tu march-es Il march-e Elle march-e Nous march-ons Vous march-ez Ils march-ent Elles march-ent FINIR Je fin-is Tu fin-is Il fin-it Elle fin-it Nous fin-issons Vous fin-issez Ils fin-issent Elles fin-issent VENDRE Je vend-s Tu vend-s Il vend- Elle vend- Nous vend-ons Vous vend-ez Ils vend-ent Elles vend-ent Of course, the actual conjugation is written without the hyphen. The hyphens are included here to illustrate the formation of the verb.

6 Now that you have a grasp of how verbs are conjugated in French, we are ready to move on to the concept of tense. As in most languages (but certainly not all), time is understood in terms of past, present, and future. Generally speaking it is the verb which conveys this concept of time (tense). In both English and French, past tense may be conveyed by using a verb in the past tense (ate), or by using a composite tense (helping verb plus the past participle: have eaten). It is this latter form of the past tense—the passé composé—which will interest us now.

7 In order to use the passé composé, it is necessary to understand how to form the past participle. This is very easy. Simply take the root of a regular verb, then add a letter as follows: TypeVerbRootAdd Past Participle -ERmarchermarch--émarché -IRfinirfin--ifini -REvendrevend--uvendu

8 Now that you are able to form the past participle, you are ready to start using the passé composé, which is generally formed by adding the past participle to the conjugation of AVOIR: AVOIRPAST PARTICIPLECONJUGATION j’ai+ mangéj’ai mangé tu as+ mangétu as mangé il a+ mangéil a mangé elle a+ mangéelle a mangé nous avons+ mangénous avons mangé vous avez+ mangévous avez mangé ils ont+ mangéils ont mangé elles ont+ mangéelles ont mangé

9 Passé composéTranslation in English j’ai mangéI ate; I have eaten tu as mangéthou didst eat; thou hast eaten il a mangéhe ate; he has eaten elle a mangéshe ate; she has eaten nous avons mangéwe ate; we have eaten vous avez mangéyou ate; you have eaten ils ont mangéthey ate; they have eaten elles ont mangéthey ate; they have eaten The passé composé is used to reference the immediate past, or that which has occurred within living memory. There is a tense for the historic past, called the passé simple, but that is a discussion for another time.

10 chercher écouter tuer cracher observer travailler reveiller cherché écouté tué craché observé travaillé reveillé Write out the past participle for each of the following –ER verbs (whether you know its meaning or not).

11 Now form the past participle for the verbs which follow: finir punir sortir réussir obéir frémir dormir fini puni sorti réussi obéi frémi dormi vendre pendre rendre descendre tendre entendre rompre vendu pendu rendu descendu tendu entendu rompu

12 Irregular Past Participles All languages, of course, have their irregularities, and some verbs form their past participle in unusual ways. You will simply have to learn the past participles for the following verbs: Irregular Past Participles avoireu êtreété fairefait

13 As if the passé composé isn’t already complicated enough, there are a number of verbs which are conjugated only with être. These have to be memorized.

14 Revenir Entrer Sortir Monter Descendre Venir Tomber Arriver Naître Michel Duval 1970 – 2020 Mourir Rester Partir Aller La maison d’être Retourner

15 There are various tricks for remembering which verbs are conjugated with être. All reflexive verbs are conjugated with être. My favorite mnemonic device was Mrs. Van der Tramp. When I came to America, I was introduced to her physician, Dr. V.E. Mantraps. Remember, simply, that all of the verbs from the House of Être are included, as are any verbs containing the same root. In order to conjugate the verbs that go with être, you will need to know their past participles.

Il est rentré envers six heures. Il est sorti. Elle est sortie aussi. Elle est venue au boum chez nous. Je suis allée au supermarché. Il est né le 6 juin, Elle est descendue à neuf heures. Elle est entrée dans la salle. Je suis retourné chez moi à six heures. Elle est tombée par terre. Elle est revenue à minuit. Il est arrivé hier à midi. Elle est morte il y a deux jours. Il est parti avec ma petite amie.

17 You now have a basic understanding of how to use the passé composé. You are able to communicate in both present and past tenses, and to use the simple future tense using aller.
