On est sortis à la Saint-Valentin.

Why does sortis have an "s" - I understand that être verbs will agree with subject but this is "on" - I did not think that this was treated at plural "nous"

This question relates to:

Hi Dragana,

Yes in this case when ‘on’ refers to several people it will agree as if it was ‘nous’.

Strange but true!
