LE PASSÉ COMPOSÉ -The perfect tense

L'Objectif: I am beginning to understand how to talk about the past.

We use the passé composé to say what happened, or what has happened, in the past.

eg,

I forgot/have forgotten my homework.

I won/I have won.

I missed/have missed the bus.

To form the perfect tense we first need to revise the verb avoir, to have.

So,

j'ai regardé = I have watched/I watched.

 

tu as joué = You have watched/you watched.
