Grammar:

1.  Possessive Adjectives
‘Leurs’ and the singular version ‘Leur’  are possessive adjectives:
They describe words by saying who they belong to:
Leur   = their (singular)
e.g.  leur chien  =  their dog
Leurs = their (plural)
e.g. leurs yeux   =  their eyes

2.  Direct Object Pronouns
Les chiens me suivent …”  =  The dogs follow me
‘me’ is a direct object pronoun: 
–  A pronoun takes the place of a noun
–  A direct object pronoun replaces who or what the verb is doing something to:
The dogs  follow(verb)  me (direct object pronoun)

Notice that in French the direct object pronoun goes before the verb:
Les chiens  me  suivent(verb)

Do people ever follow you with their eyes?

a)   Choose one of these:
une glace  = an ice-cream
un packet de chips  = a packet of crisps
une barre de chocolat  = a bar of chocolat

 b)  Choose two friends.

c)   Now say what you have and that those friends are following you with their eyes!
e.g:
J’ai une pizza.  = I have a pizza
Paul et Marie-Alix me suivent avec leurs yeux!
(Paul and Marie-Alix follow me with their eyes!)

Suivre = to follow
Present tense:
(Note:  ‘je suis’ also means ‘I am’!)
