Learn how and when to use French partitive articles and many other ways to use DE
French partitive articles and other forms of DE complete lesson - DE LA - DE L' - DU - DES - DE - D'
It is difficult to know when to use partitive articles and the correct form of DE when you don't know all of the rules and when you've not had enough practice.
This lesson focuses on using DE or D’ before adjectives that come before the noun, the partitive with masculine, feminine, singular, and plural nouns, using DE or D’ after different forms of negation, using DE after certain verbs when followed by an infinitive, and using DE or D’ with expressions of quantity.
