Demonstrative Adjectives - Adjectifs démonstratifs

Demonstrative adjectives (this, that, these, those) are words used in place of articles to indicate a specific noun. In French, they must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify:

Ce is the masculine singular demonstrative adjective:

   Ce prof parle trop. - This (That) teacher talks too much.
   J'aime ce livre. - I like this (that) book.

Ce becomes cet in front of a masculine noun that begins with a vowel or mute h (learn more):

Cet homme est sympa. - This (That) man is nice.
   Je connais cet endroit. - I know this (that) place.

Cette is feminine singular:

   Cette idée est intéressante. - This (That) idea is interesting.
   Je veux parler à cette fille. - I want to talk to this (that) girl.

La preposition < à >


Note: When followed by the definite articles le and les, à contracts with them
into a single word:
      For example  
  à + le = au au magasin  
  à + les = aux aux maisons  
But à does not contract with la or l'
  à + la = à la à la banque  
  à + l' = à l' à l'hôpital
