Hi Lisa,

'Lui' in this context is a stress/emphatic pronoun used after prepositions , like after 'chez'.

Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson for more info:

Hope this helps!

 

'Lui' is an indirect object pronoun.

So, just like the "lui" when used in the sense of "I gave the apple to him"?

Coucou Cecile!

Thank you so much!  This is an enormous help.

How embarrassing, heh. Thanks for the correct answer. Guess I should review that topic too..
