Why is the correct form of ''You and your friends play football.'' "Toi et tes amis jouent au foot."?
According to the lesson, "Toi" plus anything else is supposed to create a sentence with the verb in a "vous" form. Shouldn't it be "Toi et tes tes amis jouez au foot"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using nous, vous, ils/elles when conjugating verbs for multiple people"

Yes, I would have thought so, too. Why do you think this is wrong?

In the sentence you suggest, it would be correct if you add a 'vous'.
Tes amis et toi, vous jouez au football?
In 'toi et tes amis jouent au football' the subject becomes multiple persons and the 'toi' is lost among them as it is at the beginning of the sentence.
Hope this helps!
