    Whom

    I have two sentences:
    The people to whom he was speaking didn't know French.
    The people whom he was speaking to didn't know French.
    Are they both correct?

    Re: Whom

    The people to whom he was speaking didn't know French. Formal - correct
    The people who he was speaking to didn't know French. Normal - corrrect.
    The people whom he was speaking to didn't know French. A mixture - avoid this.
