I wrote "Alright" instead of "it's right", I think "alright" is a more appropriate translation of this one, "it's right" is real awkward.

I think that it is right "Ok, I'll see you later"

In English, it would be more natural to say "That's it" rather than "That is it"in the context of this sentence. But "OK" and "Alright" are OK substitutes, as well! Alright?

shouldn't the 's' in "plus" be mute?

I've read that the "s" is usually pronounced in positive sentences and mute in negative (in constructions like "ne ... plus", "... non plus"). I would like the opinion of a native speaker.

According to your point I decided to investigate this situation. Me, as a Spanish native I've found this: http://www.frenchtutorial.com/standard/negative/plus.es.php In English: http://www.frenchtutorial.com/standard/negative/plus.php

And Wikipedia says: http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/plus

In resume (and I accept this one): 1. When it means "more" it doesn't matter if you pronounce the final "s" or not. 2. BUT when it's negative you don't pronounce the final "s".

One time I've read, to do more enphasis as 'more' in English you pronounce the 's' in Français as you'd say 'moooore' . Sometimes the 's' is silent because the 'plus' (more in English) has no so much importance. An example, "Tu es la plu's' belle", if you pronounce the 's' (plus) you are doing an enphais that "you" are the most beautiful.

Ok. I need to tell you I've just found this on Internet. My explanation before it's good but I need to let this clear when "plus" means "no" or something negative in English it doesn't sound. Wikipedia says: http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/plus

In resume (and I accept this one): 1. When it means "more" it doesn't matter if you pronounce the final "s" or not. 2. BUT when it's negative you don't pronounce the final "s".

i don't think you say 'a plus'...a french native would say 'à la prochaine'....

Are you a native French speaker? I think that makes sense too, some of the duolingo vocab does not seem to have been double-checked with native/fluent speakers.

I wrote "Alright" instead of "it's right", too. I agree"alright" is a more appropriate translation of this one, "it's right" is real awkward.

In fact they do. My boyfriend is french and i've travelled with him too many times to see his family and i've heard them saying ''a plus'' too many times.
