Personal pronouns in French: Rules and Examples

Here’s a lesson on personal Pronouns in French with examples:

Personal Pronouns in French are used to replace the subject or object of a sentence. There are two types of personal pronouns in French: subject pronouns and object pronouns.

Subject Pronouns:

  • “je” (I)
  • “tu” (you – informal)
  • “il” (he)
  • “elle” (she)
  • “nous” (we)
  • “vous” (you – formal or plural)
  • “ils” (they – masculine)
  • “elles” (they – feminine)


  • “Je suis français.” (I am French.)
  • “Tu aimes la musique.” (You like music.)
  • “Il parle français.” (He speaks French.)
  • “Elle est française.” (She is French.)
  • “Nous allons à l’école.” (We are going to school.)
  • “Vous êtes enseignants.” (You are teachers.)
  • “Ils sont amis.” (They are friends.)
  • “Elles sont amies.” (They are friends.)

Object Pronouns:

  • “me” (me)
  • “te” (you – informal)
  • “le” (him)
  • “la” (her)
  • “nous” (us)
  • “vous” (you – formal or plural)
  • “les” (them)


  • “Il me parle.” (He speaks to me.)
  • “Elle te voit.” (She sees you.)
  • “Je le connais.” (I know him.)
  • “Tu la connais.” (You know her.)
  • “Nous vous saluons.” (We greet you.)
  • “Ils nous saluent.” (They greet us.)
  • “Elles les connaissent.” (They know them.)

It’s important to practice using personal pronouns in context to become more familiar with their usage. Practice constructing sentences with different subject and object pronouns, in different tenses, and with different verbs.
