How does the passe compose work with etre?
Basically I am really not understanding how it works and I need all the help I can get. I know about the dr and mrs vandertramp stuff but if anyone could show me how it basically all fits together i'd really appreciate it.

Basically, passe compose is conjugated like this:
present tense of avoir or etre
Avoir is the one you would use for everything EXCEPT the dr and mrs vandertramp list. so for example:
j'ai fini mes devoirs.
(I finished my homework)
Etre is used instead of avoir with the dr and mrs vandertramp verbs:
e.g. Je suis née au états unis.
(I was born in the United States)
So it all comes down to which verb it's the past tense of, which is the past participle.
I hope that helped!
