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?
There are dogs or
There are some dogs
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".
