Les Prépositions

Learn and practice French prepositions in this post: Les prepositions – French Grammar.  Prepositions (les prépositions) are small but essential words that link elements of a sentence together. They are placed after a verb, noun, or adjective in order to indicate the relationships between that word and the noun that follows. In French, there are simple prepositions (à, de, chez, etc.) as well as longer prepositional phrases (d’après, près de etc.).

Let’s begin with two important ones that we use most of the time: From and To. In French:

The Preposition “From”  can be:  DE – DU – DES – D’ 

de: city   de: Fem. country  du: Masc. country    des: Masc. and plu. country    d’: starting with vowel

The Preposition “ In / to ” can be :  À – EN – AU – AUX 

à: city         en: Fem. country  au: Masc. country    aux: Masc. and plural country
