    Hello!

    I'll point you in the direction of our glossary definition, but I'm sure someone else here will add some useful comments as well.

    See: Past Participle
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    A past participle is basically used in three ways:

    1 Have + Past Participle
    This is used for the present, past, future and conditional perfect:
    I have finished
    I had finished
    etc.

    2 Be + Past Participle
    This is used in the various teses and forms for the Passive:
    My money was stolen
    It will be finished tomorrow

    3 As an adjective
    The stolen money

    If you aren't sure of the form for irregular verbs, then go here for a list of Irregular Verbs
