Lesson Transcript

Fleur Toussaint: C'est mon mari, mes deux fils et moi.
Fleur Toussaint: C'est mon mari, mes deux fils et moi.
Did you notice how the last speaker says the number of sons?
Fleur Toussaint: C'est mon mari, mes deux fils et moi.
Fleur Toussaint: This is my husband, my two sons, and me.
Mes deux fils, "my two sons." Mes deux fils.
Let's start with fils, "sons," in this case. Fils.
Earlier in the lesson, fils translated as "son." In this case, fils translates as "sons," as there are two sons, deux fils.
Note: The pronunciation and spelling of fils is the same whether it is plural or singular.
Here, fils is mascuiline and plural โ€” a fact that determines the form of other words in the sentence.
Before this is deux, "two." Deux (enunciated). Deux.
Together, deux fils, " two sons." Deux fils.
Before this is mes, "my." Mes (enunciated). Mes.
Mes is masculine and plural to agree with fils.
Together, mes deux fils, "my two sons." Mes deux fils.
To say "my two daughters," Mes deux filles.
"My two daughters." Mes deux filles.
Filles, "daughters." Filles.
Filles is the plural form of fille, "daughter." Fille.
Note: The pronunciation of the singular and the plural is the same.
You should be aware of the plural form, but we'll use singular nouns in this lesson.
