Ron, thanks.

Sometimes you say "it's being repeated, therefore use c'est ". But in the case of Didier, its being repeated, so il is OK. IOW, I don't know when to use cest or il! What a struggle! You mentioned context. I made up all my examples. Could this lesson provide LOTS OF EXAMPLES WITHCONTELX CONTEXT? Maybe by reading dozens of context based examples, we learners may eventually get this difficult topic...

This question relates to:
French lesson "C'est vs il/elle est: Saying it is"

Bonsoir Rene, Here are four more sites that cover the use of il vs c'est. Hopefully you can get a better understanding from these different ways of explaining this. Bonne chance.
