Online French Lessons – Part 5 – Plural of Nouns and Articles

Just like in English, the plural in French is usually marked by an S at the end of the word. But it is silent. The article will also change in the plural form.

Le and la become les. Un et une become des.

une tasse
a cup

une carte
a card

la banane
the banana

la femme
the woman

une fille
a girl

un citron
a lemon

la pomme
the apple

la voiture
the car

une fleur
a flower

une chaussure
a shoe

des tasses
cups

des cartes
cards

les bananes
the bananas

les femmes
women

des filles
girls

des citrons
lemons

les pommes
the apples

les voitures
the cars

des fleurs
flowers

des chaussures
shoes


The plural in French can sometimes be marked by a x at the end of the word.  This is true for nouns ending in eu, eau and  au.

un bateau
a boat

un neveu
a nephew

des bateaux
boats

des neveux
nephews
