The Passé Composé with the Auxiliary “avoir” Part 2: Verbs of the second group

The passé composé is a tense used to express an action or a state that happened in the past. We call it “composé” because it’s composed of two parts: An auxiliary, either the auxiliary “ être” to be or the auxiliary “avoir” to have and a past participle of a verb. In this part we will only tackle the passé composé of the verbs of the second group that require the auxiliary “ avoir” .

Remember: The verbs of the second group end in “ir” and their present participle end in “issant” .

For example: finir, choisir, applaudir, pétrir, etc....
