Many episodes ago, I recorded a series of lessons about the use of the various French pronouns. I think it’s time for a quick brush-up! Here’s the question I received from a Joanna, a listener of French Your Way podcast:
“Why would the pronoun for the Louvre not be “y” in the following example:
Tu visiteras le Louvre – Tu le visiteras (you’ll visit it) ” ?
In this episode, I’ll clarify a few points to help you better understand the use of the place and direct pronouns in French. I’ll also clarify the position of the French pronouns in the sentence!
