    I need help with a couple phrases. If anyone could help me..it would be much appreciated!

    1. How would I say the decades? For instance, the '60s. Is it just les '60?


    If anyone could help me with any of these, it would be fantastic! I'm literally pulling my hair out trying to figure these out. Ah, le français!

    Hi,
    we used to say les années 60, but now that we're in the 21st century, we say les années 1960.
