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.
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.
Once you are comfortable with the verb avoir, now you can learn how to talk about the past!
THE PAST PARTICIPLE:
With regular er verbs, you take off the er, and add é
regarder - regardé
jouer - joué
j'ai regardé = I have watched/I watched.
tu as joué = You have watched/you watched.
il a parlé = He has spoken/He spoke.
