Pronunciation: Le robe vs Les robes

Hi Everyone,

I've just started to learn French here (Currently going through "Basics 2")

Can anyone tell me the difference in pronunciation between "le robe" and "les robes"

Thanks!

"robe" and "robes" are pronounced the same, but "le" and "les" are pronounced differentely. "Luh" and "Lay"

Many plurals sound the same. You have to listen for the differences in the articles. You get used to the differences in time, similar to the difference between he/she/they that can often only be heard in the conjugation.

"Le robe" is incorrect though, "robe" is feminime so it's "la robe"
