The Articles: le, la, les, l’, un, une, des

There are three types of articles in French, also called “determinants,” as they help us determine the gender and the number (singular or plural) of the noun they introduce.

The definite articles

The French definite articles are the following: “le” for masculine singular nouns, “la” for feminine singular nouns and “ l’ ” for either feminine or masculine nouns that start with a vowel or a mute “h”, and “les” for plural nouns of both genders. They are all the equivalent of the English definite article: “the”.
