Make most nouns plural by adding -s

To make a noun plural add -s at the end:

un enfant  -  des enfants
a child  -  children

BUT

Look at these nouns:

la souris  - les souris
the mouse  -  the mice

la noix  -  les noix
the nut  -  the nuts 

un nez  -  des nez
a nose  - noses

 

Notice that nouns ending in -s, -x, -z remain the same in singular and plural forms.

" le chien - les chiens " The sound clip's saying a whole lot more than just that.

What's she actually saying betwen le chien and les chiens?
