There is a typo in the video in the last slide - Their Books

Their Books should be Leurs Livres and not Leur livres as mentioned in the video or am I wrong?

Hi Shanti, 

You are correct and it should be -

Leurs livres their books

However, as it is a third-party resource we cannot alter it .

Bonne continuation!

Hi Shanti,

On the face of it, no I don't think that you are wrong.

This possessive adjective should accord with the plural noun.

On the lesson site, you should report this point by using the "Report a problem" facility.

It is a bit more complicated : https://www.lawlessfrench.com/grammar/possessive-adjectives-plural-possessions/ 

See section on leur/leurs depending on shared/unshared possessions 

 The video is an external link, not one kwiziq can modify.
