Part II focuses on past tenses, from the composition of the pass compos to its contrasting use with the imperfect tense. The formation and uses of the pluperfect and pass simple are also thoroughly reviewed.

Part III covers the future tenses (simple future, le future proche, and future perfect) and the conditional. The formation and uses of present and past subjunctive are explained, as well as the use of subjunctive in the main clause.

Part IV addresses the infinitive and negative infinitive, the imperative and negative imperative, the present participle and the gerund, and the formation and uses of the passive voice.
