Plurals is the seventh (assuming read left to right) skill in the French language tree with a total of four lessons. In these lessons, the person learning French learns how plurals are formed in French. More information on these plurals is given in the skill 'Irregular Plurals'.

Tips and NotesEdit


Almost all plurals are formed by adding an -s, just like in English. The article les is used to denote plurals

  • le canard-->les canards

Note: the words canard and canards have the same pronunciation. Context and the pronunciation of les versus le/la will tell you which one is being used.


French uses all of the same punctuation as English, with the sole exception of les guillemots: «». These are used in the place of quotation marks. At the end of a phrase with an exclamation point, question mark, colons, or semi-colons, a space is usually left before and after the mark.

  • Elle disais, «Ça va ? »
