In French, to say about the city you live in, you use the expression "habiter à" + [city].
How to express "to live in a city" in French
Look at these questions:
Où habites-tu ?Where do you live?
Tu habites où ?Where do you live?
Où habitez-vous ?Where do you live?
Vous habitez où ?Where do you live?
Note that there are different ways to ask a question in French.
Now look at these answers:
J'habite à Paris.I live in Paris.
J'habite à Londres.I live in London.
J'habite à Atlanta.I live in Atlanta.
To say which city you live in in French, you can use the verb habiter (to live [somewhere]) as such:
J'habite à + [city]
Note that je (= I) becomes j' in front of the mute h of habite.
