"The skirts are black."
Translation:Las faldas son negras.
"Son" is for multiple objects. (The skirts.) "Es" is for one object. (The skirt.) They are the same as "are" and "is".
Wtfschmuck: "son" is plural and "es" single of the third person. Example: Los gatos son negros. El gato es ❤❤❤❤❤.
How do you know when to use ❤❤❤❤❤ amd when to use negrasnor some other form? Spanish is so much more confusing than english....
I believe in this case it is negras because we are referring to the skirt, which is feminine. I made the same mistake and figured I'd check it out here. Also, I believe English is actually the screwy red headed stepchild language compared to most.
