Sentence Structure

French Sentence Structure

In this lesson you will learn the proper word order for making sentences in French. The basic sentence structure is very similar to English: subject, verb, object.

For example, to say I eat a sandwich in French would say “Je mange un sandwich”. In this simple sentence Je is the subject (I), mange is the verb (eat) and “un sandwich” is the object.
