Some verbs simply use à others use de and some can use both. It is something you have to learn together with the verb.
I am working on a list of verbs which are followed by 'à' or 'de' but not sure if that would be useful on its own as very very long....
It would be helpful, n'importe how long or short. :)
Do share, please.
Just to let you know that 3 of the lists I have been working on are now on the system -
Verbs + de + [infinitive]
Verbs + de + indirect object
Verbs + à + indirect object
As well as a Fill-in-the blanks exercise - Réunion de classe de Terminale (Verbs followed by à or de)
I'd love an in depth lesson on these prepositions too as I'm often confused about which to use. Is there a helpful rule that can be applied generally to help figure out which verbs use "à" vs. "de" (or none)?I looked at Cécile's 3 lists (work in progress?) but was unable to add them to my notebook. Is this a technical glitch or is this feature not available yet because the lessons aren't completed?
There is no specific grammatical rule it's just a matter of getting used to them.
These 3 lists are live and so is the Fill-in-the- blanks exercise to test yourself.
Re-notebook, best try Help and Support for that one.
