Is there any difference between Je vu des fleurs and J'ai vu des fleurs?; i am wondering why ''J'ai ''instead of ''Je'' .
To write "J'ai vu des fleurs" is correct in the sense of "I have seen some flowers"
You cannot write "Je vu des fleurs" but you could write "Je vois des fleurs" --> "I see some flowers"
You have to write J'ai rather than je ai to avoid two vowels appearing one after the other for phonetic reasons.
Hope this helps to aid your understanding.
Jim's right. J'ai vu... is talking about the past (passé composé tense) and "je vois..." is talking about the present (present tense). "Je vu..." is incorrect. It would be like saing "I seen..." in English.
