"I am grabbing my hat."
Translation:Je saisis mon chapeau.
"I am grabbing" is in continuous present tense, a verbal form that does not exist in French.
"I am grabbing" = Je saisis
"I grab" = Je saisis
I thought that if you're female, you must use "ma" instead of "mon"? ("Mon amie" is an exception, though).
The French possessive adjectives, just like any other adjectives, agree with the noun they modify.
- my hat = mon chapeau (masculine)
- my watch = ma montre (feminine)
- my hats and my watches = mes chapeaux et mes montres (plural).
The French possessives do not give any indication of the owner's gender.
