In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Sex
French mice have sex. That could account for the fact that there are so many of them, but the fact that they have sex is because each noun in a language like French has gender or sex. Mice are feminine or female in French but telephones are masculine or male. It’s the same in Spanish, and it’s very confusing for an Englishman like me, who has never had to worry too much about sex. In general, the English don’t worry about sex, except on the odd occasion.
