7.3.1 Exercise 1: Formation of the passé composé with être or avoir


Exercise
  We have gone to the station.
  Nous allés à la gare.
You (all) have swum.
  Vous nagé.*
  He have bought a car.
  Nous acheté une voiture.
  He has stayed at home.
  Il resté à la maison.
  She has not come.
  Elle n' pas venue.
  He has given a book to her.
  Il lui donné un livre.
  She has gone to Spain.
  Elle partie en Espagne.
  We have gone to Spain.
  Nous allés en Espagne.
  We have written a letter to him.
  Nous lui écrit une lettre.
* Here we have a tricky little detail. Actually nager is a intransitive verb and être should be used. However, when the intransitive verb describes a form of motion, not the direction, it is used with avoir. This means that the passé composé of nager is formed with avoir.
