Prepositions are important because they work to connect various parts of a sentence.

Prepositions tell us where something is in relation to something else or how things are related in space —in, on, to, with, under etc.


Others show physical connections or possession between nouns or pronouns and another word such as of, with, by. Some refer to relationships in time: while, during, after, until, before, since.

In every language, adjectives are important elements of sentences. Using adjectives means that we can express the quality of any person or object. Without adjectives we could not say how any object looks like


Adjectives are important because they...

--- describe a noun (person, place, or thing)

--- tell more about a noun (person, place, or thing)

--- make sentences more interesting

--- affect the meaning of sentences

Les adjectifs sont très imp - adjectives are very important, let's learn some

One thing to note with days of the week is that in French they don't have capital letters. The same goes for the names of months. For all of you who are a bit lazy with your capitalization generally — you're in luck!

Demonstrative adjectives (this, that, these, those) are words used in place of articles to indicate a specific noun. In French, they must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify:


Ce is the masculine singular demonstrative adjective:

Ce prof parle trop. - This (That) teacher talks too much.
J'aime ce livre. - I like this (that) book.

Ce becomes cet in front of a masculine noun that begins with a vowel or mute h (learn more):

Cet homme est sympa.

- This (That) man is nice.
Je connais cet endroit. - I know this (that) place.

Cette is feminine singular:

Cette idée est intéressante. - This (That) idea is interesting.
Je veux parler à cette fille. - I want to talk to this (that) girl.

Ces is plural:

Ces livres sont stupides. - These (Those) books are stupid.
Je cherche ces femmes. - I'm looking for these (those) women.

les adjectifs demonstratifs - CE, CET, CETTE AND CES demonstrative adjectives

for example, that “apple = pomme” in French, because you can’t speak a language by translating your mother tongue word for word. When you want to refer to an apple in French, you shouldn’t be thinking “apple; apple = pomme; say pomme”. You should just look at the apple and know that it is “pomme”.

French Teacher and Web Developer

Bonjour ! , my name is Ylber, I was born in Novosello, a small village in the south east of Kosovo, now I live in Montpellier which is a city in south of France, exciting and much more dynamic. I studied French Literature at the university of Montpellier but also English as a foreign language. I have been teaching for 5 years now in many schools and associations. I really enjoy teaching. It gives me the opportunity to learn about the different cultures around the world.

I have become a self taught, Depending on the complexity of a topic, learning something new can take a long time. And it’s bound to be frustrating as you grapple with new terminologies, new models, and apparently irrelevant information. When you are learning something by yourself, there is nobody to control the flow of information, to make sure you move from basic knowledge to intermediate and finally advanced concepts.

Keep in mind these three things :

1. Believe in God

2. be patient and

3. never give up !

Patience with your topic, and more importantly with yourself is crucial — there’s no field of knowledge that someone in the world hasn’t managed to learn, starting from exactly where you are.
I'm constantly trying to improve my teaching skills in order to satisfy the needs of my students. Internet is a very useful tool to experience new methods

I truly believe that learning new things opens the mind and allows you to be more tolerant. I’m quite open minded and flexible and always promote a positive way of learning - I like to tailor my lessons to my students’ needs so that I really can help them progress at their own place in a fun and caring environment!

My job is a passion and I look forward to share my expertise with you ! A bientôt !

I hope you enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching !
