Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
I started learning French by myself just a few weeks ago. While I was making exercises, I confused about the articles. I searched the internet, and foun this site, and became a member.
The exercise was about transforming a noun or and adjective from masculine to feminine. For example, "un mécanicien" is a mail mechanician, and "une mécanicienne" is a female mechanician. When I'd like to use this word with an article (the mechanician), how shall I know which article to use? If it's a male I have to use le, and female la.
Will you please help me?
