1 The Perfect Tense Why do we need it? In French when you want to talk about something that has happened in the past and that is completely over, you use the Perfect Tense. So the perfect tense is a PAST tense. We can use the perfect tense in three ways in English: 1. I played 2. I have played 3. I did play Whereas, in French, there is only one way to express these ideas: 1. j ai joué How do we form it? To form the perfect tense in French, we need three parts: j / je + ai / suis + joué / allé(e) [the past participle] (The person / thing doing the action. This is called the subject of the sentence.) (A part of the auxiliary or helper verb. This will only ever be part of avoir or être.) (And the past participle, which is like the -ed part of played in English.) 1

2 avoir and être It is very important that we know the verbs avoir (to have) and être (to be). These are such important verbs in French that you should learn them by heart, just as you learned your times tables in primary school. AVOIR to have J ai I have Tu as You have Il a He has Elle a She has On a We have Nous avons We have Vous avez You have Ils ont They have Elles ont They have ETRE to be Je suis Tu es Il est Elle est On est Nous sommes Vous êtes Ils sont Elles sont I am You are He is She is We are We are You are They are They are Forming the past participle Next, we need to know how to form the past participle. As we know, there are three possible verb endings on infinitive verbs in French ER/IR/RE. Each of these follows a simple rule. Here is the rule for regular verbs: For ER verbs, remove the ER and add É So jouer becomes j ai joué For IR verbs, remove the IR and add I So finir becomes j ai fini For RE verbs, remove the RE and add U So vendre becomes j ai vendu 2

3 Of course, you know enough by now to know that there are lots of irregular verbs in French. These verbs do not follow the normal rules and the most common ones should be learned by heart. But don t panic! Remember that you can find the past participle of irregular verbs in the verb table in your dictionary if you re stuck. English French Perfect Tense Translation to be to have to do/ make to open to offer to laugh to follow to sleep to take to put (on) to write to say to drive to see to read to drink to receive to live to run to believe to know ( a person or a place) to want to have to to be able to to know (a fact) être avoir faire ouvrir offrir rire suivre dormir prendre mettre écrire dire conduire voir lire boire recevoir vivre courir croire connaître vouloir devoir pouvoir savoir j ai été j ai eu j ai fait j ai ouvert j ai offert j ai ri j ai suivi j ai dormi j ai pris j ai mis j ai dit j ai écrit j ai conduit j ai vu j ai lu j ai bu j ai reçu j ai vécu j ai couru j ai cru j ai connu j ai voulu j ai dû j ai pu j ai su I have been / I was I have had / I had I have done / I did I have opened / I opened I have offered / I offered I have laughed / I laughed I have followed / I followed I have slept / I slept I have taken / I took I have put / I put I have said / I said I have written / I wrote I have driven / I drove I have seen / I saw I have read / I read I have drunk / I drank I have received / I received I have lived / I lived I have run / I ran I have believed / I believed I have known / I knew I have wanted / I wanted I have had to / I had to I have been able to / I could I have known / I knew Verbs that take être Verbs that take être in the past tense are action verbs which show that there is a change of place (movement) or state (transformation) happening. There is a useful acrostic MRS VAN DER TRAMP that we can use to help us remember which verbs take être in the past tense: MONTER to go up VENIR to come DESCENDRE to go down TOMBER to fall RESTER to stay ARRIVER to arrive ENTRER to enter RETOURNER to return SORTIR to go out NAÎTRE to be born RENTRER to go back ALLER to go MOURIR to die PARTIR to leave 3

4 Past participles with être With être, the past participle often has an extra e or an s. If the person is feminine you add an extra e If there is more than one you add an extra s If there is more than one and they are feminine add and es For example: Je suis allé(e) - I went / I have gone Tu est monté(e) you went up / you have gone up Il est arrivé he arrived / he has arrived Elle est rentrée she went back Nous sommes parti(e)s we left Vous êtes allé(es) you went Ils sont sortis they went out Elles sont restées they stayed Letters are in brackets because they might be feminine or might be plural depends on the individual case. A checklist for forming the perfect tense with être 1. Check if the verb is a Mr Van Der Tramp 2. Use the verb être 3. Add the past participle 4. Make sure that the past participle agrees. e.g. I went ALLER Je suis Je suis allé Je suis allée Mrs Van Der Tramp? Used correct part of être? Added past participle? Agreed past participle? 4

5 Exercises to check your comprehension The past participle with avoir Find the past participle of these regular verbs: 1. manger (to eat) 2. jouer (toplay) 3. vendre (to sell) 4. dormer (to sleep) 5. finir (to finish) 6. parler (to speak) 7. chanter (to sing) 8. grandir (to grow up) 9. Now use these past participles to help you translate these sentences: 1. I have eaten a pizza. 2. You have played football. 3. He sold the cat. 4. We have slept in Paris. 5. They (m) have finished the sandwich. 6. They (f) spoke French. 7. She has sung. 8. You grew up. The past participle with être Translate these sentences into French, and use the Mrs Van Der Tramp checklist to make sure you follow all the steps! 1. I went to Paris. 2. You went back home. (chez toi) 3. He went down to the kitchen. (à la cuisine) 4. She left. 5. We fell. 6. You went out with your friends. (vos amis) 7. They (m) entered the house. (dans la maison) 8. They (f) stayed in town. (en ville) 5

9 THE PERFECT TENSE REGULAR -RE VERBS Remember that in French, the Perfect Tense is made up of two things: 1. a helping verb (a bit of avoir) 2. a past participle Reminder of AVOIR: j ai tu as il a elle a on a nous avons vous avez ils ont elles ont To make the past participle of regular RE verbs : 1. take off the RE 2. add u (e.g. vendre changes to vendu) Exercise A: Write down the past participle and English meaning of the following verbs.

J mon nouveau portable. (I broke my new phone) 4. Elle son droit de voter. (She defended her right to vote) 5. Nous le bus. (We waited for the bus) 6. Est-ce que tu la voiture?
