Why the agreement?

Comme chaque année depuis que tu nous as quittéS

I did read the lesson on past participle agreement with avoir but am still not sure why the 's' is needed in the above.

Hi G,

Haven't listened to the text but I'm speculating that "nous" is a direct object pronoun appearing before the verb therefore past participle agreement "quittéS".

Hope this helps?

Yes thanks Jim!

In the attached lesson the examples given only use le/la/l'/les as the direct object pronouns which confused me a little.
