Une Question

Bonjour mes amis:

Porque se dit "ce son mes chausseures" et non "ces son mes chausseures"? J'ai confu. Je pensee que "ce" etait singulier et "ces" etait pluriel.

S'il vous plait respondez en anglais, parce que je ne sais pa un mot de francais!

I will start and repeat your question in both correct forms: "Pourquoi dit-on 'ce sont mes chaussures' et non 'ces sont mes chaussures'. C'est confus pour moi. Je pensais que 'ce' ├ętait singulier et 'ces' ├ętait pluriel". In English now: "Why is it "..." and not "..."? I am confused. I thought that... was singular and ... was plural". Now, an answer to your problem: c'est/ce sont is an idiomatic form that does not change. A bit illogic, but that's the way it is. If you want to describe shoes, you will indeed use "ces chaussures".

hehehe. OK, Sitesurf. Thanks for the corrections. You must forgive me, for I am just a starting the French, and it is not my native language.
