Confused, I know it translates to "I am lost" but how is that in the past?
I think this works like how participles also function as adjectives in English. "I am lost" vs "I have lost" or "It is broken" vs "It has broken"
It's an action that has already happened. Je perds would meaning I am losing, or I lose.
No, that would be j'ai perdu, since it is the passé composé as it happend already. Hope this helps.
That's right. Just something to help me remember and maybe others too! I thought "je suis perdu" translated to "I was lost"!
why is this showing up on the lesson for passe compose if it's in present tense? if the correct answer is truly "i am lost" instead "i was lost", then it shouldn't be in a lesson designated for past tense
