Sorry again. :)

Regarding the example, "Vous faites tous vos devoirs?", instead of "Are you all doing your homework?", I'd have thought the translation would be "Are you doing all your homework?". Could it not be? Thanks!

This relates to:
Conjugate faire in Le Présent (present tense) -

Bonjour Max !

That's an excellent question :)
Here it's a question of pronunciation:
- indeed if you pronounce [tooss] (like in the example), then "tous" = all [of the people/of them]


- but if you pronounced [too] with a mute h, then the "tous" would go with "vos devoirs"and would mean = "all your homework".

Have a look at our related lesson:

I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
