      Nobody can listen this, because there is no start arrow! No wonder nobody has commented the content.

      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

    • colm

      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?

    • radiolingua radiolingua

      @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.

      What was that about the boy under the plane?

    • Ian Anderson

      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.

    • melissab

      thank you!
      i get this now 🙂

    • Mike

      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.
