A couple questions
What is the difference between Nous and On. I've heard you use one for a big group but I'm not sure that's entirely true.
and how do I distinguish the differences between ou, because i've seen it can mean where or or. Please give me tips to remember how to distinguish these.
Sorry if these are stupid questions, they are just some that've been on my mind for a while; Thanks :)
To clear things up a bit: on can be used in impersonal statements; the passive in English is also often translated to a structure using on in French.
- I was told that... - On m'a dit que...
In oral speech, the subject pronoun nous is rarely used; we use on instead.
Correct French: Hier, nous sommes allés au cinéma.
Oral French: Hier, on est allés au cinéma.
I've tried to understand in detail when you should put the -s or not but I'm all confused... Here is a link to a trustworthy website which explains everything, I hope that will help.
Some precisions about on used instead of nous.
As mentioned in your link, the subject pronoun je, tu and vous) can also, in some context, be replaced by on. But those are far less common uses of on compared to "on for nous" which is very common in oral speech. See more details (in French) here.
I've tried to understand in detail when you should put the -s
When you use on instead of nous, then the "s" is to be used as if it was nous that was used (and, thus, not put when it's not used with nous).
See (still in French) here.
The difference beetween ''Nous'' and ''On''? I don't understand, sorry.
Like when should I use one or the other
Example: Nous voulons etre des pommes. vs On veut etre des pommes.
Which one should I use?
''On'' se substitue à n'importe quel pronom personnel like ''je'' ou alors ''On'' peut aussi être utlisé comme une observation. (if anyone can translate this in englsih ^^)
