Why does are "sandwichs" and "sandwiches" both possible? Can it be either m or f?

    English does not have a plural indefinite article, but French does. So it’s: un, une, des, as Ripcurlgirl explained.

    "Des" is the plural of "un/une". "Du" and "de la" are partitive articles used when referring to undetermined amounts of something.

    • le sandwich = the sandwich
    • un sandwich = a sandwich
    • des sandwichs = sandwiches
    • le pain = the bread
    • du pain = bread (an undetermined amount)
    • la pomme = the apple
    • une pomme = an apple
    • de la pomme = (some) apple (i.e., an undetermined amount)

    Why should I add "des" before sandwichs?

    Because it is plural, but an undetermined number of them. "Des" is the plural of "un" or "une".

    Did the monkey make the sandwiches himself? If he did, he's smarter than me already XD

    Is it me, or does anyone else laugh aloud at how she raises her voice to almost a squeak when she says "singe"?!!!
