Serious learners learn French grammar the right way from the start. In contrast to English, which differentiates gender for personal pronouns only, all French nouns and most pronouns have gender designations. Conjugations differ for each grammatical person in French, while in English, only the third person singular is conjugated differently. Word order patterns in French differ from English. Most French adjectives follow the word they modify. French uses inversion of the subject-verb order of words when asking questions. Students who keep basic rules in mind soon master how to speak French perfectly.
