Susan asked: "When is the word "président" capitalized in French?"
This question relates to:French lesson "Using le, la, les with titles, languages and academic subjects (definite articles)"
Bonjour Susan !
That's a very good question indeed!
Here is the answer, concerning président :
- When you're not addressing them personally, there won't be a capital letter:Le président Hollande visite l'Angleterre.
- When you're addressing them personally, you will use what we call the "majuscule de courtoisie" (politeness capital letter).Monsieur le Président, je vous écris...
I hope that's helpful!À bientôt !
