(feminine noun starts with a vowel)

This relates to:
Beau, nouveau, vieux have different plural forms for masculine and feminine (adjectives) -

Bonjour Matthew,

No, you're a bit mixed up.

Per the note at the bottom of the lesson: "The masculine forms bel, nouvel and vieil (when in front of a vowel) become the regular masculine plural beaux, nouveaux and vieux."

Feminine nouns always use their feminine forms; it's only singular masculine ones that have the special form.
