French personal pronouns : I

A personal pronoun is what we call the English words 'I', 'you', 'he', 'she', 'we' and 'they'. Just like English, French has a set of personal pronouns. The French word for 'I' is 'je'. The word 'je' is generally used as the subject of a verb ('I go', 'I see', 'I work' etc.). The French word for 'me' is generally 'moi'. The word 'moi' is typically used with prepositions.
