The preposition de tends to be very difficult for French students, even at advanced levels. Trying to figure out whether to use de, du, de la, or des can be a real challenge! This lesson explains when to use the preposition de all by itself and when to use the indefinite article, partitive article, or de + definite article (which looks like the partitive - but isn't. Ugh!)
In French, à plus a person can usually be replaced by an indirect object pronoun. However, a few French verbs and expressions do not allow a preceding indirect object pronoun, so you have to choose another grammatical structure.
