When are you supposed to use "du"?
Why not "Les enfants mangent des pains" ?
du refers to bread, singularly - des refers to more than one bread. If the sentence was "The children are reading books" then it would be "des livres" instead of "du livre".
how is les enfants mangent pain wrong? what does 'DU' actually do?
I seriously can't remember which versions of mange are the right ones.
this should help!
les enfants and les garcons are not the same ?
les enfants = the children
les garçons = the boys
Les enfants is the children les garçons is the boys
why is l'enfants incorrect? isnt l' to be used before a noun that starts with a vowel?
It is, but in this case "enfants" is plural, you must write "les enfats". You use l' when it's only one person L'enfant
got it! thanks.
l' is used when you have 2 vowels sounds beside each other. that's why l'enfant is correct, but when plural it turns into les enfants, because the s makes it so there are no longer 2 vowel sounds in succession
Why it's "du" not "le"?
why are we using du if "du" means some, can't we use "le" instead?
