Why is heroes singular Les heroes vont why is it va

Hi Angela,

I have found the kwiz question - 

le héros ___ dans la maison hantée 

so 'va' is correct because as Maarten correctly states, the word 'héros' has an -s in the singular form.

So the important word was 'le' and not 'les' in this particular case.

But good question!

Angela, 

I can’t see the example you are referencing but the correct expressions would be either ‘ le héros va … ‘ or ‘ les héros vont ..  ‘.

The masculine noun ‘ héros ‘ has an ‘h aspiré’, and ends in terminal ‘ s ‘ in singular and plural form. 

The feminine forms are ‘ l’héroïne va… ‘ or ‘ les héroïnes vont ..‘,  as ‘ héroïne ‘ starts with an h muët, and does not have a terminal  ‘ s ‘ in singular form.  

If you think there is a mistake somewhere, best to report directly from the test, or separately to support.
