Décéder & Devenir

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?

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://french.kwiziq.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 Composéhttps://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/conjugate-reflexive-verbs-in-the-passe-compose-conversational-past

À bientôt !

Yes, I noticed that too. In other French courses (& those 'mountain verb' diagrams) nobody tells you about décéder & devenir! What else might the cunning French be keeping from us?
