Grammar Point: plural verb forms

When the subject is plural, e.g.: ils/elles ("they"), mes amis ("my friends"), the verb must end in -nt. For example, Mes amis arrivent demain ("My friends arrive in tomorrow"). That said, you don't actually pronounce the ending, e.g.: arrive/arrivent are pronounced the same. You can learn more about French verbs here.
