3 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3B.2-3 Use the preposition à before the name of any city to express in or to. The preposition that accompanies the name of a country varies, but you can use en in many cases. In Leçon 7A, you will learn more names of countries and their corresponding prepositions.

4 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3B.2-4 Use the contractions du and des in prepositional expressions when they are appropriate.

5 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3B.2-5 You can further modify prepositions of location by using intensifiers such as tout (very, really) and juste (just, right).

6 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3B.2-6 You may use prepositions without the word de when they are not followed by a noun.

8 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3B.2-8 The preposition chez is also used to express the idea of at or to a professional’s office or business.

9 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3B.2-9 Use disjunctive pronouns after prepositions instead of subject pronouns:
