Possessive adjectives (French: les adjectifs possessifs) in French are used to signify that one person or thing belongs to another and is usually placed in front of the noun they refer to.
|with masculine singular noun||with feminine singular noun||with plural noun (both genders)||Meaning|
Note that mon, ton and son are used before feminine nouns or adjectives beginning with a vowel or silent h.
Make sure that the possessive adjective always agrees in number and gender with the noun that is modified, not with the person who owns that thing.
Bear in mind that the equivalent of your in French is ton/ta/tes for someone you call tu (informal), or votre/vos for someone you call vous (very formal).
The possessive adjective must be repeated before each noun.
Note that possessive adjectives are NOT used when you're referring to parts of the body, clothing, mental faculties or if the possessor is clearly indicated by the indirect object pronoun that has been used before the verb.
Use le, la, l' or les instead:

I’m French, currently living in the Netherlands. I lived in Paris for almost twenty years, and I know very well my country (and of course... my language, French, my mother tongue). I taught French for two years in Spain, conversation class about culture essentially. In Paris, I was Spanish teacher, I have the Agregation degree which is the highest degree for teaching in France, I'm bilingual. I've participated too in several editorial projects about Spanish teaching and DELE preparation. I have a Spanish Studies Master and I'm currently doing a research about the Spanish and Sefardi Judaism. I have a French as foreign language and a Religious Studies Masters too. I enjoy sharing what I know. I’m a very eclectic person and curious about everything. To give you an idea, my interest (and sometimes hobbies) are: philosophy, spirituality and religions in general, meditation, psychology and psychoanalysis, history, geography, literature, writing (in particular creative writing, and I’m used to write everyday), art (painting, photography), sciences (vulgarisation level) and cultural matters in general. I travel a lot (as a backpacker), sometimes by foot, and the places I know well are France, the Netherlands, Italy and Serbia. One of my qualities is my capacity of adaptation, I enjoy preparing documents to help the student to acquire autonomy, but I love speaking too, and it’s the best way to learn a language. I'm waiting for your message, please when contact me, explain quickly who you are, why you want to study French and what you are looking for exactly. See you soon. Read more
