About interrogative sentences :
Here is a new interrogative word : o (where).
Victor asks his mother : Tu vas o ?
A more correct way of asking that would have been : O vas-tu ?

We met again here the word qui, this time with a preposition. Do you remember it always refers to a person ? (see lesson 41)

About relative clauses :

No real difficulties at expressing them. Thats the same as in English. You will just have to learn the relative pronouns when you meet them.

Here we have a few relative clauses :
Jean, le monsieur qui est gentil avec toi.
Tu restes la maison avec la dame que tu aimes bien.
La dame qui apporte toujours des bonbons

We use qui when it is the subject of the relative clause.
Qui can also be an indirect object but in this case, it can only refers to a person. For a thing we use another pronoun.

We use que for a person or a thing. It is always a direct object in the relative clause.
Translate in French :

Translate in English :

2. Je vais au restaurant qui est ct de la banque.
3. Ce sont les dames qui aiment le chocolat.

Banque (fm.) : bank.
