#LA QUESTION DU JOUR
Pour présenter votre mari à vos collègues, vous dites :
- a) Il est mon mari.
- b) C'est mon mari.
b) C'est mon mari.
#AH BON ?
Eh oui ! Devant un nom, on utilise c'est.
Mais si vous décrivez la personne, vous utilisez il est ou elle est.
Ex. Mon mari? Il est formidable!
Before a noun, always use “c'est...”.
But if you describe someone, you have to use “il est” (he is) or "elle est” (she is).
#ON VA PLUS LOIN !
Quelques expressions à apprendre par coeur :
