His, her, itsSonSaSes
OurNotreNotreNotre
YourVotreVotreVotre
TheirLeurLeurLeurs


Rule:

We use “mon, ton , son” for all masculine words and for feminine ones starting with a vowel or the letter “h” when it is “mute” or silent.

We use “ma, ta, sa” for feminine words starting with a consonant.

We use “mes, tes, ses” for plural, masculine or feminine.

There is one mistake in the video, it is “leurs livres” with an “s” at the end of “leur”.

Examples:

My car is ma voiture because voiture is feminine, even a boy can say ma voiture.
My book is mon livre because livre is masculine
My school is mon école, école is feminine but starts with a vowel, so we use “mon”.
My clock is mon horloge, horloge is feminine but starts with a silent “h”.
My ax is ma hache, hache is feminine and the “h” is not silent.
