The passé composé is used when talking about something that happened and completed in the past.

The passé composé of most verbs is formed by adding the present tense of the auxiliary verb avoir to the past participle.

The past participle of -er verbs is formed by adding -é to the infinitive stem.

The passé composé is also called the conversational past tense.
