Avoir and etre
I saw in the lesson that you say j ai Monte Les escaliers rather than je suis montes Les escaliers why is this Paul

As explained in the following lesson -
it depends whether the verb 'monter' has an object (transitive) or not .
In this case it has - monter les escaliers - so it will take 'avoir' but if you said
Je suis monté dans ma chambre = I went up to my bedroom
it would be 'être' as it has not object (intransitive).
Hope this helps!
