Remember the past tense verbs that take avoir as MRSVANDERTRAMP: Monter --> monté (went up) Retourner --> retourné (returned) Sortir --> sorti (went out) Venir --> venu (came) Arriver --> arrivé (arrived) Naître --> né (was born) Descendre --> descendu (went down) Entrer --> entré (entered) Rester --> resté (stayed) Tomber --> tombé (fell) Rentrer --> rentré (went back in) Aller --> allé (went) Mourir --> mort (died) Partir --> parti (left) The rest are Etre verbs.

Evan it's the other way round. Those verbs take Etre (as well as every Reflexive verb) but all the rest take Avoir. J'ai fait - I did Je suis tombé - I fell (NOT J'ai tombé)
