Bonjour Richard ! It depends on whether you're using a verb followed by the preposition "de" or not. E.g. "Je me sers *d'*un outil." (I'm using a tool.) -> "Je me sers soit d'un marteau soit d'un tournevis." "J'ai vu Paul." (I saw Paul.) -> "J'ai vu soit Paul soit Thomas." "Tu as besoin *de* quelque chose." (You need something.) -> "Tu as besoin soit d'un crayon soit d'un stylo." I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
