Hi Sasha,

You cannot say -

'Il est mon cousin'    but

C'est mon cousin, il est très gentil ....

Pourquoi? Aren't you describing a particular boy (il est) as being my cousin?

Salut a tous

If I were to say She is my cousin, would it still be C'est mon cousin?

Hi Claudia, 

It would be -

"C'est ma cousine."

Merci
