- Learn the Who/What/When/Where/Why/How of French:
- Don't use est-ce que with être: Où est ton frère? Comment est ton amie? Qui est le prof?
- Notice French doesn't use a separate whom... but it is picky about not ending clauses with prepositions:
|when||Quand est-ce que...?|
|where||Où est-ce que...?|
|why||Pourquoi est-ce que...?|
|how||Comment est-ce que...?|
|with whom||Avec qui est-ce que...?|
- Avec qui est-ce que tu fais du ski? ("With whom are you going skiing?"... not the colloquial American "Who are you going skiing with?"
- À qui est-ce qu'elle téléphone pour inviter à jouer à des jeux vidéo? ("To whom is she calling to invite to play video games?"... not "Who is she calling to to invite...."
- De qui as-tu besoin? ("Of whom do you have need?"... not "Whom do you have need of?"
