______________________________________

To make the past tense your need two (2) parts:

AVOIR+past participle = passé composé

1.  You must first conjugate the verb AVOIR to match the subject (je, tu…)
J’ai
Tu as
Il/Elle a
Nous avons
Vous avez
Ils/Elles ont

2. In order to formulate the past participle you take the -ER, -IR, or the -RE ending off of the verb that is happening in the past.

Take off the -ER and add and é
Take off the -IR and add an i
Take off the -RE and add a u

E.g.
Jouer —> Joué
Finir —> Fini
Rendre —> Rendu

***There are some irregular verbs that are the exception to the rule.***

Avoir —> eu
Être —> été
Faire —> fait
Vouloir —> voulu
Pouvoir —> pu
Devoir —> dû
Prendre —> pris
