Relative clauses

Relative clauses are structures that help to avoid repetition.
Consider these sentences:

A woman is talking to Martin.
Our new teacher is a woman.

We can combine these sentences using relative clauses:

Our new teacher is the woman who is talking to Martin.  OR
The woman who is talking to Martin is our new teacher.

When we use this structure, we use pronouns, relative pronouns, such as WHO in the example.
