Hi Tanusree, 

'My uncle comes from Le Havre' (originates from) and

'My uncle is coming from le Havre today' would both be:

'Mon oncle vient du Havre' in French  

but the context would clarify which meaning applies...

Hope this helps!

My uncle comes from Havre and my uncle is coming from Havre?

Bonjour,

What are the contracted forms of  au and/or du,in response to "du Havre" and not "de Havre?"

Hi Tole,

If I have understood your question correctly -

à + le = au

de + le = du

 

Je vais au Havre

Je viens du Havre

Hope this helps!
