Okay. I can never remember which verbs get the etre and which get avoir to put it in the passe compose with a direct object in the sentence.

Etre- For intransitive verbs. Also used with no direct object, or there's no DR&MRS Vandertramp verb in the sentence.

Avoir- For transitive verbs and Ms. Red verbs. Used where there is a direct object.

Is that correct?

Who the hell are Ms Red and Mr Vandertramp? Shocked

I don't the exact rule, but use avoir as a default and Ítre with aller, partir, venir, those verbs that express movement.

I've forgotten most of what goes in there, but it's like instinct when you have to use it.
