You already know how to form the passato prossimo tense. Here is a reminder:
Part of avere
MOST verbs use part of Avere to form the passato prossimo .
Here are some examples
Arrivare partire stare
Cadere piacere succedere
Correre restare tornare
Diventare rimanere uscire
Most intransitive verbs, most impersonal verbs and all reflexive verbs take essere
When the passato prossimo is formed with Essere, the past participle behaves like an adjective.
So, if you have a feminine subject (the “doer” of the verb), you must also have a femininepast participle.
è andato (masculine)
è andata (feminine)
If the subject is plural, the past participle must also be plural.
Sono andati (masculine plural)
Sono andate (feminine plural)
Choose the correct past participle.
