Hi Conrad,

There is no easy answer to bypass studying relative pronouns in French.

Take a look at the following Kwizip lessons -

https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/when-to-use-qui-to-say-who-which-or-that-relative-pronouns

https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/when-to-use-que-to-say-whom-which-or-that-relative-pronouns

There are some useful rules of thumb that say that 'qui' will be normally followed by a verb and 'que' by a pronoun before the verb but there are some exceptions to that rule that will need to be addressed.

Bonne continuation!
