Passé composé ou l'imparfait

J'ai toujours trouver les problèmes de quand utiliser le passé composé ou l'imparfait.


I'm still having challenges in when to use the passé composé instead of the imparfait and vice versa.

Bonjour Olive,

I would say follow Chris' advice and in a while things will become easier. The more you'll practice the better you will become at all aspects of French grammar. I remember learning English as quite a challenge at times.  

Here are a few links which I hope you will find helpful:

the-french-simple-past-le-passe-compose

Bonne journée!

I empathize, Olive. But you're just at the beginning. The mist will lift with time. Don't fret over it too much. Try to absorb and not to over-analyze.
