What are they called? They are both relative pronouns: they replace a noun that has been mentioned before AND work as connectives too. This is the pen which I love writing with. We are two friends who are travelling together.
When do we use qui? Qui is the subject of the second sentence. Le joueur de foot qui est le meilleur est celui qui marque des buts! The football player who is the best is the one who scores! La chanson qui me fait pleurer vient de passer à la radio. The song that makes me cry has just been played on the radio.
When do we use que? Que is the object of the second sentence. Le livre que je lis est formidable. The book that I am reading is great. La pomme que j’ai mangée était délicieuse. The apple that I ate was delicious.
Ce qui, ce que… They work on the same pattern, but tend to be at the beginning of a sentence. Ce que je veux, c’est du silence! What I want is silence! Ce qui est drôle, c’est que tu aimes Cliff Richard! What is funny is that you like Cliff Richard!
