how can you know if it's les or le ?
le sounds like luh
les sounds like lay
Hope that helps!
but in recording both sound quite the same
"le" is singular: le garçon (vowel pronunced like "but")
"les" is plural: les garçons (vowel pronunced like "bet")
"Are you doing approximately boys?" lol
It accepted "Are the boys well?", but the meaning is very different. Is it right? Is there a more usual way to ask the health of someone not present?
Actually, you are right, the sentence in French can be about absent boys as well as asking the boys themselves how they are doing. I assume a bit of context would differentiate that ambiguity quickly enough.
Like You said.. a bit of context... hum, never mind I'll try to hear difference between singular&plural. head up :)
