Passé Antérieur Exercises For French Grammar

The Past Anterior Tense in French grammar, also known as the “past perfect” or “pluperfect,” is used to express actions that happened before another action in the past. This tense is formed by combining the auxiliary verb “avoir” or “être” in the simple past tense (also known as the “passé simple” or “preterite”) with the past participle of the main verb. The choice of the auxiliary verb depends on the main verb: most verbs use “avoir,” but some verbs of motion and reflexive verbs use “être.” In these exercises, you will practice using the past anterior tense in various contexts. Fill in the blanks with the correct form of the verb in parentheses, and remember to use the appropriate auxiliary verb. Bonne chance!
