J'habite à [city] = I live in [city]

Look at these questions:

Informal/singular questions:

Où habites-tu ?
Where do you live?

Tu habites où ?
Where do you live?

Formal/plural questions:

Où habitez-vous ?
Where do you live?

Vous habitez où ?
Where do you live?

Note that there are different ways to ask a question in French.

Now look at these answers:

J'habite à Paris.
I live in Paris.

J'habite à Londres.
I live in London.

J'habite à Atlanta.
I live in Atlanta.

To say which city you live in in French, you can use the verb habiter (to live [somewhere]) as such:

J'habite à + [city]

Note that je (= I) becomes j' in front of the mute h of habite.
See also Je becomes j' with verbs beginning with a vowel (elision) 

 

See more complex cases in Using 'à' (to/in) and 'de' (from/of) with cities (prepositions)

How do I say I live in the western cape of South Africa?

Asked 6 months ago
MarieKwiziq team memberCorrect answer

Hi Lianda,

You would say "J'habite au Cap-Occidental en Afrique du Sud."

SwastikA1Kwiziq community member

@marie 

Bonjour!

Why "a" was not used here instead of "au"

MarieKwiziq team member

Hi Swastik,

We say "au" as the name of this place is "Le Cap-Occidental". "Au" is the contraction of "à" + "le".

You can get more information here: À + le = au, à + les = aux, de + le = du, de + les = des (contractions of articles)

Hope this helps!

Hello why can I say j’habite dans Paris

Asked 10 months ago
ChrisC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor

According to my native French language consultants (i.e., French friends) you can hear a number of different ways to express "I live in Paris", each with a slightly different meaning:

J'habite Paris. -- I am a citizen of Paris.
J'habite à Paris. -- I live in Paris. (A general statement)
J'habite dans Paris. -- I live right in Paris (probably somewhere near the center)
J'habite sur Paris. -- I live by Paris (in the greater urban area but not right in Paris)

Does habiter need a prepositionÉ

In my book 501 French verbs it teaches that the verb habiter doesn't require a preposition so, J'habite cette maison, is acceptable.  

Is "J'habite à [city] an exception?  Is "J'habite [city]" acceptable?

Both "J'habite à [city]" and "J'habite [city]" are acceptable, although nowadays I seem to hear more of the former than the latter.

Hi ... does this same (use of 'à) rule apply to towns and villages as well as cities?

Asked 1 year ago
CécileKwiziq team memberCorrect answer

Hi Stewart,

Yes indeed as Ron says, the rules will be the same for towns and villages.

You will use 'à ' or in the case of masculine names ´auand 

'aux' for plural names.

Just a few examples of these: 

j'habite  à Gordes, j'habite au Chesnay ( Le Chesnay ), j'habite au Pecq (Le Pecq) , j'habite aux Baux de Provence (les Baux de Provence)...

Hope this helps! 

 

RonC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor
Bonjour Stewart, In a word, yes; the same rule applies for cities, towns and villages. This is a basic structure to discuss where one lives. As you progress, there will be other locales, i.e. regions, departments, etc. where the preposition changes. This lesson here is at the A0 level, hence the basic : J'habite à. . . structure. When one gets into the A1 level, you will find a different structure for stating certain areas where one lives. J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait.

Asked 2 years ago

Bonjour Cynthia !

First of all, you need to know that Qatar is a masculine country in French, so you will say:
J'habite au Qatar.

See: Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)">Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)">Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)">Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)

Secondly, from your name, I assume you are a woman, so your nationality will have to agree accordingly:
Je suis kenyane

Bonjour Ei ! The first part of your sentence is perfect, however "Birmanie" being a feminine country in French, you will say "EN Birmanie", not "au" :) Have a look at this lesson: Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions) À bientôt !

J'habite à Toronto dans Canada.

Is dans correct and does it matter if city or country goes first?
Asked 3 years ago
DavidB2Kwiziq community memberCorrect answer
J'habite à Toronto au Canada.
DavidB2Kwiziq community member
This is a really sticky one. Part of the problem is learning the gender of all the world's countries. But there are some tricks. With some exceptions (le Belize, le Cambodge, le Mexique, le Mozambique, le Zaïre, le Zimbabwe) all countries that end in "e" are feminine. The rest are masculine. If a country is masculine and starts with a consonant, use: au (to or in) du (from If a country is masculine and starts with a vowel, use: en (to or in) d' (from) If a country is feminine, use: en (to or in) de / d' (from) If a country is plural, use: aux (to or in) des (from) You can forget "dans" with a country. And the city and country can come in either order, as long as the prepositions are correct. Good luck!
MicheleC1Kwiziq community member
So the correct form would be J'habite à Toronto au Canada? And J'habite au Canada à Toronto would also be correct?
Christian A0Kwiziq community member
Superb! Merci David et Michelle!
DavidB2Kwiziq community member
Yes. But with a city like Toronto or New York (where I live) there's really no need to say the country. So you're off the hook! Bonus tip: if you're a native of a city or country, you can use the adjective form of that country or city plus "de souche." "Je suis New Yorkais de souche." "Je suis français de souche."
