1 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-1 Point de départ In Leçon 2A, you learned four ways to formulate yes or no questions in French. However, many questions seek information that can’t be provided by a simple yes or no answer.

2 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-2 Use these words with est-ce que or inversion.

3 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-3 Although quand? and à quelle heure? can be translated as when?, in English, they are not interchangeable. Use quand to talk about a day or date, and à quelle heure to talk about a particular time of day.

4 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-4 Another way to formulate questions with most interrogative words is by placing them after a verb. This kind of formulation is very informal but very common. Note that quoi? (what?) must immediately follow a preposition in order to be used with est-ce que or inversion. If no preposition is necessary, place quoi after the verb.

5 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-5 To answer a question formulated with pourquoi, use parce que/qu’ (because). It’s impolite to use Quoi? to indicate that you don’t understand what’s being said. Use Comment? or Pardon? instead.

6 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-6 Note that when qui is used as a subject, the verb that follows is always singular. Quel(le)(s) agrees in gender and number with the noun it modifies.

7 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.2-7 Quel(le)(s) can be placed before a form of the verb être.
