Bonjour,

In the examples on the right you say in number 4 on the second row:

C'est bientôt les vacances!
It's the holidays soon!

But in explaining the lesson you say:

Ce sont bientôt les vacances!
It's the holidays soon!

Which is correct?!

Thank you.

Hi Heba,

Both are acceptable, although the plural version "ce sont" is more formal and considered a bit more "proper".

Here is a page that explains it well: http://www.oniris.be/forum/c-est-les-vacances-ou-ce-sont-les-vacances-t6977s0.html
