Bonjour Paul, The link below is for the lesson regarding «ancien» use before and after the noun it modifies. https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/view/119 Here is the take-away from the lesson: Before the noun, ancien means --> 'former' / 'ex-' / no longer After the noun it means --> 'ancient' / 'old' ***** Note that the adjective ancien in the sense of "ancient" is not really used for people. J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait. Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français, la langue de Molière et qui a été utilisé par le monde français depuis l’époque d’Hugues Capet
