Relative Composed Pronouns – Mini French Lesson


SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH A MINI FRENCH LESSON ON FRENCH RELATIVE COMPOSED PRONOUNS

Fill in the blank with the correct form of lequel:

👉 Le courriel _________ j’ai répondu était plein de fautes d’orthographe.

👉 The email to which I replied was full of spelling mistakes.

👉 Le courriel auquel j’ai répondu était plein de fautes d’orthographe.

Why is auquel the correct answer?

👉 The verb répondre is followed by the preposition à. You reply to something or someone.

What would this sentence look like if it were formed differently?

👉 J’ai répondu à un courriel qui était plein de fautes d’orthographe.

👉 I replied to an email that was full of spelling mistakes.

If you want to say “The email to which I replied” instead of “I replied to an email”, you need to use a form of lequel. When lequel is preceded by the preposition à, you need to form a contraction.

👉 À + LEQUEL = AUQUEL
