When I went through the plurals in French, there was supposed to be a difference between the definite objects that would tell you singular or plural. For example, the singular le/la should be pronounced leh/lah, respectively, while les for plurals should be pronounced lay, but it was pronounced EXACTLY the same as the singular definite articles. It is screwed up in duo but if you were to watch "Learn French with Alexa" you would hear native pronunciation far superior to duo's French. In the meantime, put your head down and forge through the plural section!

Basically, you juste have to add "s" after the name AND the adjective.

Ex :

Singulier : "L'homme libre"

Plurial : "Les hommes libres."

L'adjectif s'accorde toujours en genre et en nombre.

There are some cases "x" is the mark of the plural.

The adjective always takes the plural mark.

BUT, there's a tricky case where even french people make some mistakes : L'accord du participe passé et des verbes pronominaux.

It's a bit long to explain and as a native, i sometimes make some mistake,s so i suggest you to check out a good website or grammar book.

But maybe someone knows the topic better and is going to explain you without mistakes...!
