C'est à moi

C'est à moi

I seem to remember another lesson that talked about the the sort of construction above. Something like Whose suitcase is this? (French translation appreciated)- C'est a moi. = It's mine. I have trouble remembering the "names" of the different types of pronouns. Would it be possible to add a link to the lesson that discussed à moi, à toi, etc. ?

Bonjour Melody !

Thank you for your request, these links were indeed much needed, and thanks to you, they've been added to the related lessons.

Here is the link to the lesson regarding expressing possession with être à + stress pronoun

Merci et à bientôt !

I’m confused on when to use the À moi form vs Le mien.  I looked at both lessons and didn’t see a reference that clarified it.

Found an answer from duolingo forum
https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/17907418/What-s-the-difference-between-La-mienne-and-%C3%81-moi

it seems that  for a specific context they can be the same, but le mien is more versatile, in a sense that it can act as a replacement (pronoun) while être à + stress pronoun just means "qqch. belongs to me/you etc."
