The Pronoun Train

Handout on Understanding Pronoun Placement

Different types of pronouns and their placements in French syntax has always been problematic to students.

A number of mnemonics already existed to remember the order of specific groups of pronouns, but nothing compiled all the variants possible in the different moods and statements.

Therefore, I created this handout so that students could have a one-page ressource that would include all the information they need to articulate complex French sentences with multiple components.

My main goal as an instructor is to share my ressources with my colleagues and make my tutorials available to fellow teachers. In my mind, teaching is fundamentally collaborative, and my colleagues have been using this sheet in their respective sections too.
