Possessive Pronouns – Mini French Lesson


SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH A MINI FRENCH LESSON ON FRENCH POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS

Restate the following sentence using a French possessive pronoun:

馃憠 C’est leur livre.

馃憠 It is their book.

馃憠 C’est _________.

馃憠 It is theirs.

馃憠 C’est le leur.

LE refers to the book (le livre). LEUR is the pronoun that shows possession. Notice the way LEUR is used in the original sentence:

馃憠 C’est leur livre.

LEUR is being used as a possessive adjective. It indicates who owns the book.

馃憠 C’est le leur.

LE LEUR not only shows possession. It also replaces the noun livre with a pronoun.

Let’s take this mini lesson one step further…..

馃憠 C’est mon livre. C’est le mien.

馃憠 C’est ton livre. C’est le tien.

馃憠 C’est son livre. C’est le sien.

馃憠 C’est notre livre. C’est le n么tre.

馃憠 C’est votre livre. C’est le v么tre.
