[40 minutes] passé composé with être! p. 60
  • Review: most French verbs use avoir for the past tense helping verb
  • Some French verbs take être for the past tense helping verb.
  • There are numerous ways to memorize these verbs (see, for example, DR & MRS VANDERTRAMP or Mon Prof VAN DER SMART; or la maison d'être).
  • CAH recommends just thinking "Verbs of Motion... sort of!"
  • Oral Practice: Où est-ce que tu es allé(e) hier? Expand to ask where other people went.
  • Writing: note that with être as helping verb, participle must agree in gender (add -e for ladies) and number (add -s for plural).
  • Practice with Ex. 32
Les Devoirs: 
  1. p. 61 Exs. 33 & 34 (yes, of course you write out complete sentences!)
