  • as a side note in French vous is also used instead of tu

  • in situations where you want to be more polite even if you are speaking to only

  • one single person

  • tu is used only when speaking to someone you know very well and feel close to

  • such as a friend a family member etc.

  • in English they is used for both men and women without distinction

  • however in French we say il for men

  • and elle for women

  • basically it's the same as the singular you simply have to add and

  • s at the end of each thus for instance

  • to say they are good friends when speaking about two girls

  • you would say elles sont de bonnes amies we will see more about verbs
