''Lucas a monté la nouvelle armoire de sa soeur.''

Can someone please explain to me how that also translates to "Lucas assembled his sister's new wardrobe"? 

This question relates to:
French lesson "Monter can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning"

Hi Nicole,

As explained in the lesson the verb 'monter' has several  meanings in French. 

In this case it is 'monter un meuble' which means to assemble a piece of furniture (think of Ikea) and it will use 'avoir' in the perfect tense.

Hope this helps!
