Hi Melissa,

There are dogs or

There are some dogs

is both 

Il y a des chiens , in French

'some' is often omitted in English but you cannot do this in French.

Hope this helps!

 

Il y a les chiens translates to "There are the dogs", and as above il y a des chiens can mean both "there are dogs" or "there are some dogs".

des/les

Could you say:

Il y a les chiens... to say there are dogs

and then say il y a des chiens... to say there are some dogs?
