  1. Excusez-nous! Sorry for the bug resulting in no audio player on this post. We’ve rectified this and hope you’ve been able to play the episode now.

  2. qui
    تسبقها الفاعل و بعدها فعل
    Jhon qui alle a`laeroport

    تسبقها المفعول به و بعدها الفاعل
    le fromage que je mange
    و إذا جاء الفعل الماضي بعد الفاعل يجب الوضع في الإعتبار أن الفعل يعود في هذه الحالة على المعفول به
    ex: les livres que j`ai achetes
    la chambre que j`ai aimee

    don`t worry this an arabic summary for the lesson

  3. This cleared up a lot of uncertainty for me after much searching on this topic. Do these rules always hold verb/subject qui/que and how does ce qui and ce que fit into this?

  4. @Colm Yes, it will always hold based on what we covered in the lesson. Ce qui and Ce que is a little more complicated, although it still works based on the subject/object issue. We’ll be covering these in future lessons.

  5. What happened to qui and que? We are now over 8 and a half minutes into this lesson but no mention of them so far except in the opening spiel.

  6. Dear Ian, this episode is 26mins long, probably to accommodate the first 8 mins of revision, which I find very helpful. If it bothers you so much, just fast forward the first 8 mins. Q.E.D.
    Thanks guys, I genuinely find these podcasts invaluable for my learning. You are all extremely generous at C.B.F.
