Interrogative words in French❓

How to ask a question in French?

Questions in which you expect more specific information than a simple YES or NO response are called complex questions.

For these kind of questions, you need to use interrogative words like:

  • qui = who
  • quand = when
  • où = where
  • que / quoi = what
  • combien = how many/much
  • comment = how
  • pourquoi = why
  • quel / quels / quelle / quelles = which
