Student or Learner
Hello, I am 'The French',
I would like to know, if the relative pronoun whom, is often used in writting and speaking English.
I ask this question, because someone told me that 'whom' is only used for object or after preposition, and nowadays nobody use it.
People prefer to replace it by 'who'.
Thanks for your collaboration, and sorry for my mistakes (I'm a beginner), don't hesitate to correct me (no trouble).
Have a great day.
You are right when you say that people prefer to use who rather than whom. It is more used in writing English and obligatory in prepositional phrases. And your English is quite good!
what do you mean by kicking?
I have a little trouble to understand the edn of your sentence. I know kick someone but I think you don't mean that.
Very special use of this word, can you send me a short explanation.
PS: I am not a native speaker, but since you'd requested for corrections, I tried my best to correct your sentences. Bonjour. EnchantÚ de vous rencontrer

I have a little trouble (difficulties) to understand at the end of your sentence. I know how to kick someone but I think you don't mean that (I don't think so that you meant it that way).
