ses jours de congé: I'm doing one of your translation tests - why is there no S on congé please, even though it's jours with an s? Thank you!
This question relates to:French lesson "Most nouns take an -s in the plural unless they already end in -s, -x, -z"

there's no s because congé is not an adjective but a noun.
Jours de congé -- days of vacation.
If you said instaid "jours congés" it would be an adjective and hence also pick up the s. The difference lying in the preposition "de".
