Grammar 2

I can’t get in. The door are locked.

 

In Polish (and perhaps in many other, if not all of the Slavic languages), door is a plural word (presumably because a door has two sides and two door handles).

 

However, in English, it is a countable noun, so you can have one or two doors.

 

So the door is locked. Or if more than one door, than the doors are locked.
