Décéder & Devenir
I was caught out as I hadn't learnt that Décéder & Devenir are etre verbs in passe compose: they are not in the "traditional" group (and not in the house photo on Wikipedia). Are there any other rogue verbs that use etre?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate mourir, naître, décéder, devenir, rester (+ être) in Le Passé Composé (conversational past)"

Bonjour Chris !
All the (+être) verbs are covered in our system in two lessons: this one (for 'rogue' verbs) and the "coming and going verbs" lesson (see https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/conjugate-coming-and-going-verbs-etre-in-le-passe-compose-conversational-past).
Also remember that all reflexive verbs also take être in Le Passé Composé: https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/conjugate-reflexive-verbs-in-the-passe-compose-conversational-past
À bientôt !
