What's up with you guys? Are you obsessed with death and dying. How about "Les canards sont jolie" or your favorite rouges "les canards sont rouges.".
They're never feeding, swimming or even waddling. They are being chased by every grisly use and tense of mourir! Free the ducks! Seriously, sometimes the phrases can distress learners.
Yes, Kate. However I live on the water and you wouldn't believe the horrific things ducks get up to, mate, honestly. But yes, the Duo programmers could have used some therapy before constructing some of our task sentences, couldn't they?
In this case, listen for "Les" for plural vs. "Le" for singular. Other than that, "canard mort" and "canard morts" sound alike. Follow context clues, such as any additional sentences in dialogue.
You're welcome! "Les" is pronounced like "lay" in English. "Le" is the masculine singular and is pronounced "luh".

@aruss6gb. Check Asaal's post 9th above. Just remember that nomatter what the hoverfox comes up with We Are In PRESENT Tense and stick with that.
Thats "les canards meurent". Here the ducks have finished dying; they're dead now. Mort.
Yes. It is an adjective agreeing with the noun it modifies. Il est mort. Elle est morte.
