    Default I have a doubt about this sentence

    Hi!!!

    Is this sentence grammatically correct? I searched it on the internet but I didn't find it!!!


    -- Being her the first person I've ever spoken to in French...... --



    Is that the proper way? a native speaker would use it?


    Thank you in advance!!!!

    It is not correct.
    'Her being the first person I ever spoke to in French (is something we often talk about.') is correct.

    If you are simply saying that she is the first person you ever spoke to in French, then say, She is the first person I have (or I've) ever spoken to in French. or She is the first person I ever spoke to in French.
