Assunto:  French girls students?
 
Mensagem: 

Your question:
S3: Three beautiful, tall and slim, French girls students
...shouldn't the writer have written "girl" instead of "girls"?
My answer:
Three beautiful, tall and slim, French girls students
Had you asked:
...shouldn't the writer have written "student" instead of "students"?
My answer would have been:
Three beautiful, tall and slim, French girls students
Three (pl) is the magic word, changes everything.

 

I agree with Dale, but let's see it in a different way:

 

                    I can't say :  3 French woman student
                                       3 French woman students
                                       3 French women student
                                       1 French woman students
                                       1 French women student s
                                       1 Frennh women student
                  I should say : 3 French women students
                                       1 French woman student
 

Am I wrong?
