PASSÉ COMPOSÉ WITH ÊTRE
USESThere are several past tenses in French, and each is used in very specific situations. As we already know, the passé composé is the most common past tense; it is used to relate actions or events completed in the past. The passé composé may be translated into English in three different ways depending on the context.
|Marc est allé en France.|| Mark went to France.|
