    I have a French exam soon and I was wondering if you could help me with a particular sentence? I'm trying to say 'in general, I like my school and get on well with most of the students'. Here is what I've wrote:

    En general, j'aime mon college et s'entendent bien avec la plupart des eleves.

    However I'm really unsure if the s'entendent bien part is correct or not?

    Aussi, on devrait dire "la plupart d'eleves" au lieu de "des"

    :no: La plupart des éleves is correct.

    La plupart de doesn't function in the same way as other expressions of quantity as it's followed by the definite article, like in English.

    Beaucoup d'éleves sont gentils. Lots of pupils are nice.
    La plupart des éleves sont gentils. Most of the pupils are nice.
