expressions with tout/tous

expressions with tout/tous

Tous les deux translates as "both" (all the two), and tous les nous as "all of us". Toute & toutes are the feminine forms of tout/tous, so if the nous are all females, should we say: toutes les nous? Cheryl

Bonjour Cheryl ! "Tous/toutes les nous" is not correct in French. To express "all of us", you would say "nous tous", or indeed if the group is feminine, "nous toutes" :) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

"Tous les deux" (both of us/them/you) will also agree if the group is feminine = "Toutes les deux"
Thank you Aurélie ! Such a small expression, but I've not come across that one before: nous tous/nous toutes. Cheryl
