Bonsoir Pryia, Would you please clarify your post as I don't see a question posed here?

Bonsoir Pryia, Since you have not replied to my request for clarification on your question, I can only guess at what you are having difficulty with. So here goes: Firstly, if you are reading this in the Q&A section, you will need to go to the lesson referenced in your statement, then if you scroll down this list of questions on the lesson, you should find a couple of links provided by Gruff in response to Brian's similar concern. Having said that, I am going to provide you with a couple of other «outside» links that also cover agreeing the past participle with the subject's gender and number when using être as the auxiliary verb in le passé composé. http://laits.utexas.edu/tex/gr/tap3.html https://www.francaisfacile.com/exercices/exercice-francais-2/exercice-francais-9508.php https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJCJCfKR0gA Further, I typically do not like to use resources outside of Kwiziq but sometimes it becomes necessary to get a broader perspective on the topic. I hope that my response is the issue you are having difficulty with and helps to clarify it for you. Bonne chance et bonne continuation. Ron ( un locuteur non natif)

Hi Pryia,

The rules of agreement in French can often seem infuriating as very complicated.

It might put your mind at ease to realise that often these rules only make a difference in the written language and not in spoken French as a lot of the past participles will be pronounced in the same way, e.g. allé, allée, allées ...

Hope this helps!
