Would you use the “he/she” verb ending or the “ they” verb ending?
For 'mes parents' and 'mes sœurs' you would use the 'ils/elles' ending which is the third person plural -
sont/ vont/ font/ prennent/ choisissent/ vendent
Hope this helps!
Can you post a concrete sentence as an example of what exactly you have a problem with? But in general, you would use the verb in plural to refer to a plural subject:
My sisters live in Paris. -- Mes soeurs habitent à Paris.
For mes parents or mes sœurs, the correct verb ending would be the third person plural, ie., “ils/elles” verb ending. What has helped me is to say it to myself in the following way: My sisters (they) live with me. While my sisters (she) lives with me doesn’t make sense. Hope that helps and makes sense.
