So if I want to say: "I like girls" I would have to say "J'aime les filles"???? I can't just say: "J'aime filles"? & cant I use the partitive here ?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using le, la, l', les before nouns when generalising (definite articles)"
Kwiziq language super star
j'aime les filles
But is there an explanation for this??? Why do I have to use 'les'?

As is said in the lesson -
"In English, we drop the when talking about things in general, but notice that in French, when talking about things in general or abstractly, you must use le, la, l', or les (the definite article). "
So you will say :
J'aime les filles, le chocolat, le football, ....
Hope this is clearer...
