Bonsoir Ian, I have the same question that you posted. Slowly but surely, I am trying to learn these conversions in each tens/mood. I have found simply memorizing them and using them in the practice quizzes is the best way for me. Bonne chance et bonne continuation.

Hi Ian,

the rule, as explained in the corresponding lesson, is the following: put the verb "être" into the required tense, followed by the past participle of the verb (don't forget to match gender and number with the subject!). For example:

The apple is eaten. -- La pomme est mangée
The apple was eaten. -- La pomme était mangée (imparfait)
The apple has been eaten. -- La pomme a été mangée (passé composé)
The apple had been eaten. -- La pomme avait été mangée (plusqueparfait)
The apple will be eaten. -- La pomme sera mangée (future simple)
The apple will have been eaten. -- La pomme aura été mangée (future éxacte)
