"How are you, girls?"

How do I know that I should have used "les filles" instead of "des filles" here?

If it is your first time with an address like this one, you were not supposed to know it. The French way to address a public is to use the definite article or another "determiner" like a possessive adjective:

  • comment ça va les filles ?
  • comment ça va, mon garçon ?
