Present Perfect (Passé Composé)
The passé composé is used to describe actions that occurred in the past. They may be single events or series: Note: While verbs describing mental and emotional states in the past are often in the imparfait, they can be put in the passé composé when one wishes to signal a change or a reaction: See also Use of Present and Imperfect, and Pluperfect (use).
