2013-09-26Translation: « Elle est une de mon amie. »

Why wrong: In French, the final s in a plural isn’t usually pronounced. This can create confusion if you do this in English. It’s true the reference is to only one friend, but the use of “of” makes it one of many, hence plural.  For more information, click here. To be taken seriously…Coaching2

Correct it: The final s on plurals must be pronounced or else singular will be understood. Say “She is one of my friends.”
