Confusing to Students 1: Persons vs. People vs. Peoples

Most of the time, people is the correct word to choose as a plural for person. 

Persons is archaic, and it is safe to avoid using it, except in legal writing, which has its own traditional language. 

Peoples is only necessary when you refer to distinct ethnic groups (for example, within the same region).
