    Cool the group have

    Hello!

    I always find it hard to use the plural form of a verb with a singular noun...

    Therefore, can you confirm this sentence is correct, please?

    "The other group have cancelled their lesson".

    Thank you!

    No. It should be "has canceled"

    "The (other) group have cancelled their lesson" is acceptable in BrE.
