    I am trying to say 'my family is the kindest in the world' and I am following the rule:
    Definite article + superlative + adjective + de

    My response:
    Ma famille est la plus gentille du monde.

    But this doesn't seem right..how do I check? Translators aren't really helping.

    What rules have I forgotten in my answer below? Is it definitely necessary to include the noun (le professeur) before the superlative (le plus)? Like in English we can say 'My teacher is the best in the world' but we can also say 'My teacher is the best teacher in the world' and both are correct.
    Your response:
    Mon professeur de français est le plus dynamique de toutes les professeurs.

    Sample answer:
    Mon professeur de français est le professeur le plus (le moins) dynamique de l’université.

    You can say 'j'ai la famille la plus gentille dans le monde'?

    For this sort of question, go to wordreference and post there. Many French natives can help you.
