In French, what does agreement mean again?

Cause for example I put down this:

Ils ont marches sur l'Avenue Champs-Elysees.

But there shouldnt be an S after marche because theres no agreement with avoir.

Could I please know what agreement means again?

  • FRENCH - ,

    marché (passé composé with avoir only has the past participle agree with a preceding direct object.) There is none here.......Eysées

    Verbs conjugated with être have the past participle agree with the subject...
    Ils sont allés (for girls = allées)
    Elle est morte

    With adjectives, agreement means the adjective has the same number (singular/plural) and gender (masculine/feminine) as the noun(s) modified
    la maison blanche
    les livres lourds (heavy)

    With verbs, there is agreement of the proper ending, depending upon the subject
    je finis
    ils finissent

    Above are 4 types of agreement.

    Sra (aka Mme)

    Okay so would agreement just be the endings?

  • FRENCH - ,

    I suppose you "could" say that! I just never thought of it in those terms!

    Sra (aka Mme)

    P.S. There are so many definitions for the word "agreement" but here's what I found when it refers to grammar:
    correspondence in grammatical case, number, gender, person, etc., between syntactically connected words.

    I like your definition better, thanks=)

    And just if you'd like to know, the book I have is called C'est A toi! And it it Level 2.
