mon ma mes = my my my

Rules are different in English and in French.

Look at these 3 examples:

mon lit --> my bed            ma chambre --> my room             mes clés --> my keys

MY is translated in 3 different ways in French : MON, MA, MES. That is because it agrees with the noun that it modifies, the noun that follows.

  • If the noun is masculine, the adjective is masculine: lit is masculine, so we pick from the masculine column: mon
  • If the noun is feminine, the adjective is feminine: chambre is feminine, so we pick from the feminine column: ma
  • If the noun is plural, the adjective is plural: clés is plural, so we pick from the plural column: mes

.
