Verbs: Passé Composé is the forty-third (assuming left to right) skill in the French language tree. This skill contains nine lessons about the second kind of past tense in French: the compound past (passé composé in French).

Grammar NotesEdit

The passé composé contains two major parts. These are the past participle and the auxiliary verb. Let's look at a sentence with the passé composé...

Il a bu du jus d'orange. ("He has drunk orange juice.")

A bu is the portion we are interested in. Avoir is used as an auxiliary in this case (être is the other possibility) and is conjugated for il. Bu is the past participle, and agrees in gender and number with the subject like an adjective.

Last note: reflexive verbs always take être, regardless of their usual choice.
