Bonjour Kathleen !

The possessive following "on" depends on whether "on" refers to a defined group (we) or if it's used in a more general way (people).

Here's the link to our related lesson, that I realised thanks to you was not linked to the exercise. This has now been rectified :) 
Use "notre" or "son" with "on"

I hope that's helpful!

Bonne journée !

Hi Kathleen,

"we'll each have our own room"

Each person will have their own room   --> on aura chacun son propre chambre

or we could say "One will have one's own room"

Hope this helps.
