How can I ask a question in French?
If I want to ask something like 'What season is it?' Is it correct to say 'Quelle saison est-elle?' (because saison is a feminine noun) or is there some other way to ask it?
Or if I want to ask about what week it is, do I say 'Quelle semaine est-elle?' or 'Quel saison est-il?'
So basically, do I use quel and quelle to ask the question based on the gender of the noun?
Hello, in French we say "Quelle saison est-ce ?", or "on est en quelle saison ?" (familiar) I begin in English, so it's possible you don't understand very well what I say. For the week, we say "Quelle semaine est on ?", or "on est quelle semaine ?" (familiar) You have to use "quel" or "quelle" fot the questions based of the gender of the noun. But in French we usually say "on est... Quelle semaine/quel mois/ quel jour, quelle année ?"
I hope I help you
I am maybe not right but as a French speaker person I find these sentences really weird. I think that seeing "En quelle saison sommes nous ?" is more appropriate because saying "Quelle saison est elle ?" is like talking to a person. Sorry for the English mistakes and good luch with French
You do select based on gender - but both season and week are feminine, so would use Quelle. Month is masculine, and would use Quel.
Quel mois est-il ?
