2. The perfect tense of regular verbs

Use the perfect tense to describe completed actions in the past. It translates into English in three ways:

  • I met
  • I have met
  • I did meet

For the majority of verbs, the perfect tense is formed using the relevant part of the auxiliary verb avoir (to have) and a past participle.

To form the perfect tense of regular -er, -ir and -re verbs:

  • -er => e (acute)
  • -ir => i
  • -re => u
