Amikeco,

I saw the answers in Chapter 6 on articles.

And yes, some nouns seem to turn feminine when they become plural.

Wow! What could be the logic behind that?

All plural nouns use "die". That "die" has nothing to do with changing the gender of words.

In French male nouns have "le" and female ones "la" but the plural article of both is "les".

So German and French follow the same concept here, though just because the article is the same, it is still important to which gender the word belongs to. Smile
