Use of etre + descendre/monter in the passe compose
I know that you use etre + ascendre or descendre or monter in the passe compose when the verb is followed by a preposition, but I am still slightly confused, with certain situations.
For example, I got on.... would be "Je suis monte sur...", But "I mounted.... would be "J'ai monte...." You could say "I mounted the bus." or "I got on the bus." Could you use either, saying "Je suis monte sur le bus." OR J'ai monte le bus?" Is "to go upstairs" "monter l'escalier" or "aller en haut"
I have the same problems with descendre. For example, how do you say "I went downstairs"?
Forgive the lack of accents. Your advice sheet doesn't work on my computer.
