FRENCH INDEX FRENCH - grammar - verbs that take 'être' GRAMMAR: INDEX


VERBS THAT TAKE "ÊTRE"

Most verbs in French make certain tenses using the verb "avoir" - eg see the regular ER verb, donner, "to give", in the perfect, future perfect, pluperfect and conditional perfect tenses.

However, a small number of verbs make those tenses (Nos. 4, 5, 6 and 8) using the verb "être". These are mainly specific "verbs of motion" as well as the "reflexive verbs", and are shown below. [Note that the four verbs with *stars* will use "avoir" if there is a DIRECT OBJECT - eg "he climbed THE STAIRS".]

Remember that the "past participle" [eg "entré"] of verbs conjugated with être, has to *agree* with whether the subject/s of the verb are (a) masculine singular, (b) masculine plural, (c) feminine singular, or (d) feminine plural.

venir to come   aller to go
arriver to arrive   partir to depart
entrer* to enter, come into   sortir* to leave, go out
monter* to climb, get up onto   descendre* to get down, go down
rester to stay   tomber to fall
retourner to return, turn back   revenir to come back
rentrer to re-enter, return   devenir to become
naître to be born   mourir to die
