French Grammar

In French, nouns (substantives m.) are either masculine (m.) or feminine (f.). Each gender has its own article.
le jour m.     the day
la nuit  f.      the night

Les is the plural article for both masculine and feminine nouns.
les hommes  m. plural     the men
les femmes   f.   plural     the women

When the noun begins with a vowel or a silent ‘h’, the le or la simply becomes l’.
l’ombre m.     the shade
l’abeille  f.      the bee
l’hôtel  m.      the hotel
