Ce livre = this/that book ( " ce " before a masc noun with no vowel sound)

Ces livres = These/Those books ( plural for masc/fem nouns)

Cet hotel = this/that hotel ( has a vowel sound so we need the "T")

Cette chaise = this/that chair ( chaise is Fem , so we need cette)

De = " of " masc

Du = " of the /some " masc ( de + le = du) du riz

de la = " of the / some " fem ( de la viande)

Des = plural some masc/fem des choses
