French Relative Pronouns - QUE - QUI - OÙ - DONT
This is a lesson for upper-intermediate B2 level learners. It is important to understand why we need relative pronouns, and how to use them in order to speak French correctly. Once you know the rules, you'll feel ready to practice, practice, and practice again! By the time you finish this mini-course, you'll even feel better about that tricky DONT.... The video that is included with this lesson is the same as the one on YouTube, and you can also view it in the course "promo".
This course is included in my BUNDLED FRENCH LESSONS which continues to grow, and once you own it you'll never pay another centime!
Step 1: Print out your 5 page lesson guide on French relative pronouns. Have it handy for taking notes during the video lesson.
Step 2: Watch the video lesson, and you'll see how to use the relative pronouns QUE - QUI - OÙ - DONT. There are lots of examples, and there's even a little quiz at the end.
Step 3: Practice using this online quizlet study set.
Step 4: Practice cards , Set 1 - Use your set of 50 French relative pronouns practice cards to test your new French skills. Each card contains a fill in the blank sentence. The only options are QUI - QUE - OÙ - DONT.
- 11 cards use QUE
- 12 cards use QUI
- 11 cards use OÙ
- 16 cards use DONT
- 50 numbered practice cards - 4 per page for printing and cutting out
- 50 numbered practice cards (the same ones) - 1 per page for online use
- Numbered answer key
Step 5: Practice cards , Set 2 - Use your set of 140 relative pronouns practice cards to work on forming your own sentences. This resource does not include an answer key as you will be forming original sentences. You can always write to me if you want to check your work!
Each card displays an image, and beneath the image it is written how to say it in French. For example, C'est un lave-vaisselle. You are prompted to say at least two sentences using relative pronouns to describe the image. At the top of the card it may say C'est quelque chose que..... or C'est quelque chose dont..... and at the bottom of the card it may say C'est quelque chose où..... or C'est quelque chose qui..... You have to finish the sentences using correct grammar.
In the beginning, it can be very difficult to form your own sentences, and that's why there are two sets of 70 cards included.
SET ONE: The cards have two clues already written on them. This is a nice way for you to warm up to the activity, understand how it works, and get in some valuable practice and examples. In this version, just read the sentences carefully to see how I've used relative pronouns to describe the images.
SET TWO: These are the same cards, but the clues are not written on them. You will have already practiced with set one, and should be able to come up with your own sentences (and if you remember the ones from set one... that's great)! The only clues they you are given is whether you should follow the prompt with a subject or verb since those rules can be tricky and hard to remember.
