    Cela signifie que l'on parle des enfants nes de memes parents, meme pere, meme mere.

    His siblings are in their early thirties. : Ses freres et soeurs sont dans la trentaine.

     

    Indeed, there are fewer words in French than in English! Try finding an equivalent of "eavesdropping" or "jaywalk", for example... ;)

    So yes, for "siblings", you have to say "frères et soeurs".

    The French word for it is : Fratrie
