Thats right, Katie. Instead of having a single word translation of The, in French they use plural and singular. Le and La are singular, while Les is plural. Empreints refers to footprints, prints, etc.

Thanks, got it. It's been more than 40 years since I used my French and it's really, really rusty. I did remember the plural and singular (masculine and feminine) part. Guess if I worked at it, it would come back to me.
