In French, you use the PASSÉ
COMPOSÉ to say that you did something
or have done something in the past.
Example - English: I ate. French: I have eaten.
There are two parts to the passé composé.
Think of it like a math problem: A + B = P.C.
A is your helping verb
B is your past participle
P.C. is the Passe Compose!
