Les noms et les articles
All French nouns, unlike English nouns, have a gender. Every noun is either masculine or feminine.

most other nouns, gender is usually arbitrary and must be memorized.

Subject pronouns are the subject of a sentence. You should remember that you match up the
subject pronoun with the correct forms of verbs. This chart should help you remember the order

_____________________________________, depending on if they are masculine, feminine, or plural.
