Talking about your House How to say where things are, what they are like, and to whom they belong.
Cest la maison de qui? To tell that something belongs to someone, you can use de = of, or a possessive pronoun (Ex = mon, ma, mes). Cest la chambre de Caroline = It is Carolines room. (The French NEVER use s to show possession). mon, ma, mes = my notre, nos = our ton, ta, tes = your votre, vos = your son, sa, ses = his/her leur, leurs = their Ex = Cest sa chambre. = It is his (or her) room.
Où sont les toilettes??? To tell where things are, you are going to need to know prepositions (in front of, next to, behind, to the right of...) Many of these end with the word de (of) in French. When de is followed by le, la, l or les, it forms a contraction.
Contractions with de de + le = du de + la = de la de + l = de l de + les = des Ex: La table de nuit est à droite du lit.
Cest une belle maison! In French, most adjectives come after the verb they describe. Ex: La maison blanche There are some adjectives that come before the noun they describe. We categorize these as BAGS adjectives. Ex: La belle maison
