Lesson potentially confusing

 

The listing of all of the cases can mislead people that may not have done previous lessons; either assume people know the difference between qui and que and cut out the listing or assume they don't and shine a light on:

(Tout ce) qui = Subject of the following verb

(Tout ce) que = Object of the following verb

I agree with Rhys. This isn't a topic for a dedicated lesson. Either you know when to use qui/que as a relative pronoun or you don't. Either way, this should be explained in the related lesson about qui/que. A separate lesson about tout ce qui/que is redundant, in my opinion.

I find that there are quite a few "tiny" lessons that hark upon a minor point, while there are huge lessons trying to explain a complex issue that would benefit from being divided in smaller chunks. The lessons would probably benefit from a more uniform size, and some care should be taken that they really teach bite-sized chunks of grammar.

Bonjour à tous,

Thank you for your feedback! We've passed this on to the French team who has discussed it. They will amend and add details to improve the explanation in this lesson.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Bonjour Rhys,

This is an issue for the help desk or report "a problem" top left of the lesson.

Bonne Journée
