Mistakes beginning-level French Students Make

Number Four: Contractions

Unlike English, where Contractions are optional and not required, in French, they are required. Whenever a short word like je, me, te, le or la are followed by a word that begins with a vowel, the short word drops the the final vowel and replaces it with an apostrophe, to attach itself to the final word ( ie: j’aime, l’ami). Contractions never occur in front of a consonant in French, with the exception H muet.
