Hey everybody, so I know that some French grammar can be super elusive. Well, I’d like to help with that!
Here is our very first Quick French Tips post. If you have questions about particular aspects of French grammar, be sure to drop us a line and we’ll be back with a tip!
For today’s tip: y means there. Now, the « y » in French is rather versatile, so this isn’t the only way to use it, but it’s a good place to start!
So if you want to say you are going somewhere in French, and use a pronoun, then use « y ». Let’s have one more example:
- If you want to say, « We went there for her birthday last time. » Then in French this becomes, « Nous y sommes allés pour son anniversaire la dernière fois. »
Does that make sense? Let me know if you need more help or examples!
