Do you remember how to answer the question tu viens d'où ?in French?
Sure! Je viens des États-Unis.
Parfait ! And did you know that you can also use the verb venir withthe preposition de for another situation?
No, but I feel like you're going to tell me.
Tu as raison...
Venirde can beused with an infinitive to express a recent action in the past:
Je viensdefinir mon livre.
I havejust finished my book.
Vous venezdemanger le gâteau.
You (plural/formal) havejust eaten the cake.
Oh okay... That seems easy!
I'm glad you think so.
Can I say, je viens des États-Unis et je viens de manger un hamburger?
Bien sûr! You can use both forms of venir in the same sentence if you'd like. Just remember that one expresses the origin (with a country or a city), and the other expresses a recent event in the past!
