Bonjour!

Can someone please help me to understand the difference between using qui est-ce qui vs qui est-ce que?

Salut Rebecca,

Qui est-ce qui  -> who is it who ...

Qui est-ce que -> who is it that ...

To supplement the standard excellent lessons, sometimes it helps to have a slightly different explanation.

This is why I have included the following link to Laura Lawless's grammar explanation:-

I hope it helps to explain further for you.

Bonne continuation,

Jim
