I have a problem when I try to use des. For example, which of these sentences are correct: Je vois de lapins. Je vois des lapins. Difficultés de missions. Difficultés des missions. I need to know ...
I came across the following translation and I was unsure why the sentence started with "de" Little girls read books. Translation: De petites filles lisent des livres.
I don't understand why people sometimes use 'du' instead of 'des' when the meaning of both articles is the same. For example, "some pencils" is des crayons whereas "some cheese" is du fromage.
