Prepositions after adjectives - Easy Learning Grammar French

  • Just like verbs, some French adjectives can be linked to what follows by either à or de.
  • An adjective followed by de or à can be followed by a noun, a pronoun or an infinitive.
  • Some adjectives that can be followed by de are used to say how you feel, that you are certain about something, or that it is necessary or important to do something. These are the most common:
