Do you know the difference between the relative pronouns QUI and QUE in French?
QUI replaces a SUBJECT
- Zoé a un chat. Ce chat s’appelle Léo.
- Zoé a un chat QUI s’appelle Léo. = Zoé has a cat who is called Léo.
QUI is mostly followed by a verb or by a direct or indirect object pronoun.
QUE replaces a DIRECT OBJECT
- Je lis un livre. Ce livre est intéressant.
- Le livre QUE je lis est intéressant. = The book (that) I’m reading is interesting.
⚠️ QUE becomes QU’ in front of a word beginning with a vowel or a mute H.
- Le livre qu’il lit est intéressant. = The book he is reading is interesting.
QUE is mostly followed by a subject.
