Who or whom ?

Who or whom ?

In England, if you ask 95% of the populace if they use the word 'whom' they will look at you with a puzzled expression. Stop confusing french learners with this extinct conundrum.   Move on

Hi Andrew, 

I see that you have taken part in the following discussion on the same topic -

Sometimes, a grammatical point can seem redundant in one language but is very much alive in another so it is always difficult to find a perfect translation as it can sound stilted, this case being a good illustration of the point.

Bonne Continuation !

It is sad to see important points of grammar go by the wayside. Not for nostalgic reasons but because it dulls your sense of language structure in general and makes it harder to learn a foreign language.

Maybe stretching oneself and using the full set of English grammar to have more contact points with French may turn out to be helpful?
