In this quiz we look at two different types of words: prepositions (words which describe when or where something is in relation to another thing) and pronouns (words which refer to a noun that does not need to be named). You may know the French personal pronouns (je, il, nous etc.) but there are others such as the French words for nobody, anybody or who. Try this quiz and revise more prepositions and pronouns in French.
