In English, it's no longer polite to call women "ladies."

"i.e. taking an extra -e for ladies, and an extra -s for more than one person, -es for multiple ladies."

Is this 19th century England? Just say "women."

Bonjour Janet !

Oops, I don't know what happened there, I was probably reading too much Jane Austen when I wrote that lesson ;)  It's now been changed to "women". thanks for that!

Bonne journée !
