Perhaps this page should also include an explanation when to use "quel".
As far as i remember, one uses "Quel" when the verb is "etre". Is that correct?
Just to add to what has already been said, are you thinking of sentences with être like -
Quel est ton nom ? = What is your name?
Quelle est ta date de naissance ? = What is your date of birth?
Quelles sont vos intentions ? = What are your intentions?
Quel est ton film préféré ? = What is your favourite fim? ( from the lesson pinned by Chris above)
Bonne Continuation ?
Quel is a different kind of word from que. It is an interrogative pronoun and used like an adjective, i.e., it always needs a noun following it. It belongs in the following lineup of similar pronouns:
quel -- masculine singularquels -- masculine pluralquelle -- feminine singularquelles -- feminine plural
Quelles chansons a-t-elle chantées? -- Which songs did she sing?Quel ami tu as rejoint hier? -- Which friend did you meet yesterday?
While there is nothing from stopping quel being used with être, there certainly is no rule that requires it to be used only with être.
Oh, and here's the lesson for that: Quel/quels/quelle/quelles ? = Which/what? (French Question Words)
