The Conditional Perfect Tense

The compound tenses are formed by taking the auxilary verb "haber" and adding a past participle (in the masculine form).

Therefore, the conditional perfect takes the future tense form of the verb "haber" and adds the past participle.

Here is "haber" in the conditional tense.

  singular plural
first person habría habríamos
second person habrías habríais
third person habría habrían
