Relative Pronouns – Mini French Lesson


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

Fill in the blank with QUI, QUE, OÙ or DONT:

👉 Les cerises _________ j’ai acheté un kilo ne sont pas bonnes.

👉 The cherries of which I bought one kilo are not good.

Why is dont the correct answer?

👉 The purpose of relative pronouns is to join clauses and to avoid repetition.

Let’s break it down into two sentences:

👉 J’ai acheté un kilo de cerises.

👉 Les cerises ne sont pas bonnes.

We want to avoid repeating the word cerises, and turn two sentences into one. We can do this with a relative pronoun. Notice the preposition DE: un kilo de cerises. This is the reason why we need to use DONT. It is the object of the preposition DE.
