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!

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!
