Does de l'orages not contract even if orages is plural. So not "des orages" but "de l'orages." Although on second thoughts its probably "le orages" not "les orages."

Bonsoir Michael, I am curious about the question; I looked at the lesson and do not find a reference example about «orage» or «orages». Orage is msculin, singular for thunderstorm and orages is the pluriel. De l'orage would be correct but de les orages --> becomes des orages in contraction. J'espère que cela vous aiderait.
Bonjour Michae, un orage l'orage (as the contraction of le + orage) de l'orage (as the contraction of de le + orage) des orages à l'orage aux orages These are all the contractions with articles I can think of. -- Chris (not a native speaker)
