Salut. Je regardais une chaine francaise et j'ai entendu que l'hote a prononcé "tous" et "plus" avec le S. Ca c'est bizzare à moi parce que j'ai appris à les(or is it leur) dire sans le S.

Excellente question. En fait, le 's' est prononcé dans certains cas seulement.

Je me lève tous les jours à 6h30 --> le 's' n'est pas prononcé
Qui va à la fête? Nous y allons tous! --> le 's' est prononcé

On prononce le 's' quand tous est utilisé pour dire "tout le monde"


Pour plus, it's tricky because plus mean more and no more

Je n'en veux plus (no more)--> le s n'est pas prononcé

Je veux plus de gateau (more) --> le s est prononcé

Deux plus deux font quatre --> le s est prononcé

So I would pronounce the S in this tous "Les personnes et organisations suivantes ont tous rendu possible la mise en place de LIVE 8"

I wouldn't pronounce it in "tous les jours" though? Right?

That's correct, Sir Wink
