"These are a few of our best friends."
Translation:Ce sont quelques-uns de nos meilleurs amis.
Come on, Tommy. "Ces" is an adjective.
And "determinants" or "determiners" can be "adjectives" or "articles."
For new learners it is just much easier to use two different terms for words having two different functions in a sentence. Regrouping them into one just makes it more confusing
Here's an example
La vieille dame porte sa nouvelle bague dorée (The old lady is wearing her new golden ring)
Student: Can you please tell me the classification of each word
La = Adjective
Vieille = also adjective
Dame = noun
Porte = verb
Sa = Another adjective
Nouvelle = That's.. an ajective
Bague = noun
Dorée = Adjective, of course.
Student: Thanks fam!
