J'habite à [city] = I live in [city]

Look at these questions:

Informal/singular questions:

Où habites-tu ?
Where do you live?

Tu habites où ?
Where do you live?

Formal/plural questions:

Où habitez-vous ?
Where do you live?

Vous habitez où ?
Where do you live?

Note that there are different ways to ask a question in French.

Now look at these answers:

J'habite à Paris.
I live in Paris.

J'habite à Londres.
I live in London.

J'habite à Atlanta.
I live in Atlanta.

To say which city you live in in French, you can use the verb habiter (to live [somewhere]) as such:

J'habite à + [city]

Note that je (= I) becomes j' in front of the mute h of habite.
See also Je becomes j' with verbs beginning with a vowel (elision) 

 

See more complex cases in Using 'à' (to/in) and 'de' (from/of) with cities (prepositions)

How do I say I live in the western cape of South Africa?

Asked 5 months ago
MarieKwiziq language super starCorrect answer

Hi Lianda,

You would say "J'habite au Cap-Occidental en Afrique du Sud."

@marie 

Bonjour!

Why "a" was not used here instead of "au"

MarieKwiziq language super star

Hi Swastik,

We say "au" as the name of this place is "Le Cap-Occidental". "Au" is the contraction of "à" + "le".

You can get more information here: À + le = au, à + les = aux, de + le = du, de + les = des (contractions of articles)

Hope this helps!

Hello why can I say j’habite dans Paris

Asked 9 months ago

According to my native French language consultants (i.e., French friends) you can hear a number of different ways to express "I live in Paris", each with a slightly different meaning:

J'habite Paris. -- I am a citizen of Paris.
J'habite à Paris. -- I live in Paris. (A general statement)
J'habite dans Paris. -- I live right in Paris (probably somewhere near the center)
J'habite sur Paris. -- I live by Paris (in the greater urban area but not right in Paris)

Does habiter need a prepositionÉ

In my book 501 French verbs it teaches that the verb habiter doesn't require a preposition so, J'habite cette maison, is acceptable.  

Is "J'habite à [city] an exception?  Is "J'habite [city]" acceptable?
Asked 9 months ago
TomC1Correct answer

Both "J'habite à [city]" and "J'habite [city]" are acceptable, although nowadays I seem to hear more of the former than the latter.

Asked 11 months ago

It is because in English (and most indo-european languages) the verb changes according to the subjects person. Tu is second person singular and vous is second person plural. Verb endings differ. You ask why this is so? Simply because.

Hi ... does this same (use of 'à) rule apply to towns and villages as well as cities?

Asked 1 year ago
CécileKwiziq language super starCorrect answer

Hi Stewart,

Yes indeed as Ron says, the rules will be the same for towns and villages.

You will use 'à ' or in the case of masculine names ´auand 

'aux' for plural names.

Just a few examples of these: 

j'habite  à Gordes, j'habite au Chesnay ( Le Chesnay ), j'habite au Pecq (Le Pecq) , j'habite aux Baux de Provence (les Baux de Provence)...

Hope this helps! 

 

RonC1
Bonjour Stewart, In a word, yes; the same rule applies for cities, towns and villages. This is a basic structure to discuss where one lives. As you progress, there will be other locales, i.e. regions, departments, etc. where the preposition changes. This lesson here is at the A0 level, hence the basic : J'habite à. . . structure. When one gets into the A1 level, you will find a different structure for stating certain areas where one lives. J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait.

Asked 2 years ago
AurélieKwiziq language super starCorrect answer
Bonjour Cynthia !

First of all, you need to know that Qatar is a masculine country in French, so you will say:
J'habite au Qatar.

See: Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)">Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)">Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)">Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)

Secondly, from your name, I assume you are a woman, so your nationality will have to agree accordingly:
Je suis kenyane

Bonjour Scott ! "J'habite à Perth" is correct if you're talking about a city, however to say "in Australia", you'll say: "en Australie". See the related lesson: Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions) À bientôt !

J'habite à Coree du Sud

Asked 3 years ago
LauraKwiziq language super star
Bonjour Luong, Since Corée du Sud is a country, not a city, you need a different preposition: en Corée du Sud. See our lesson: Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions) In comparison, you can say J'habite à Seoul.

J'habite à Toronto dans Canada.

Is dans correct and does it matter if city or country goes first?
Asked 3 years ago
DavidB2Correct answer
J'habite à Toronto au Canada.
This is a really sticky one. Part of the problem is learning the gender of all the world's countries. But there are some tricks. With some exceptions (le Belize, le Cambodge, le Mexique, le Mozambique, le Zaïre, le Zimbabwe) all countries that end in "e" are feminine. The rest are masculine. If a country is masculine and starts with a consonant, use: au (to or in) du (from If a country is masculine and starts with a vowel, use: en (to or in) d' (from) If a country is feminine, use: en (to or in) de / d' (from) If a country is plural, use: aux (to or in) des (from) You can forget "dans" with a country. And the city and country can come in either order, as long as the prepositions are correct. Good luck!
So the correct form would be J'habite à Toronto au Canada? And J'habite au Canada à Toronto would also be correct?
Superb! Merci David et Michelle!
Yes. But with a city like Toronto or New York (where I live) there's really no need to say the country. So you're off the hook! Bonus tip: if you're a native of a city or country, you can use the adjective form of that country or city plus "de souche." "Je suis New Yorkais de souche." "Je suis français de souche."
