  1. When do we use ho corso versus sono corso? I have seen both in my books and I am confused when to use avere and when to use essere with the past tense.
    Grazie!

  2. Marie,
    Examples:
    “Ho corso tutto il giorno” – I’ve run all day
    “Sono corso da te” – I’ve run to you
    As a general rule, use “avere” when the focus of the sentence is on the action of “correre” (running), and use “essere” when the focus of the sentence is on the “end” (in this case, “da te”).
