"les" is the article, it works as "the". "Des" is a constraction of " de les", which means "of the". That means that "des hommes" means "of the men".
Why is this "les" and not "la"
Because women is a plural word
Because les is plural
Women is plural so you say Les femmes
Because if there is a plural everything becomes plural
To everyone confused, why it is "les femmes" instead of "la femme": "les femmes" is plural: meaning two or more women, "la femme" is just one woman
What is the difference between des and les?
I think "des" = some, and "les" is a plural form of "the" that you use with plural nouns - ? I'm having trouble mixing them up, too.
Des is an indefinite article and les is a definite article
When do i use les femmes vs l'femmes
You never use l'femmes. When you have the plural 'les' it always stays 'les'. 'Le' or 'la' can change into l' ( l apostrof ) when the word it belongs to starts with 'h' or with a vowel.
Once you learn spanish it is surprisingly easy to learn french since they both originate from latin and have most of the same sounding and meaning words
Maybe I should learn spanish then! Thanks for the tip
Can please any one tell me where we use "le femme" and "les femmes" ?
Femme is feminin, so it is 'la femme'. This is feminin singular. Les femmes is feminin plural. 'Les' is both the same for masculin and feminin plural.
So... just checking. If it is a plural you add an s?
How can we tell "the women" is plural when "the woman" is also used in singular
what's the difference
easy. whoever agrees, either like or dislike this comment.
I thought it should be "las femmes", am I wrong? (Because "les" is used for masculine nouns, and "las" for feminine)
