Words of Gender in Spanish

In this section, we are going to learn something called gender. Unlike English, Spanish noun has a particular gender (Masculine or feminine). There are specific rules that can help you to distinguish masculine from feminine words.

Masculine words end in: o, l, n, ema and sometimes end in e.
Examples: muchacho, mantel, algodón, problema, parque.

Feminine words end in: a, ción, sión, dad and tad.
Examples: carta, canción, pasión, comunidad, mitad.

Note: If you have a doubt about what gender a word could be, always choose masculine.

Now, having this knowledge, try to put the correct article (Feminine or masculine) to each word of the vocabulary you have learnt.
Another thing very important to remember in Spanish are the plurals, for example the word 'Casa 'would be 'Casas' (Adding a simple s) if its more than one house. There are some rules that will help you to know how to use plurals in Spanish. If a word ends in a vowel you only have to add an s like the example with Casa / Casas.

Here's another example:

Libro becomes libros
Amiga becomes amigas
Mesa becomes mesas

Note: If a word ends in a consonant then you have to add 'es'.

Examples:

Doctor becomes doctores
Actividad becomes actividades
Papel becomes papeles

The articles el, la, los,las are known as the definite articles because they specify exactly what the noun is. The English equivalent is the. They are placed in front of the noun. For example, el perro (The dog). You can see that we places the masculine article with a masculine word. It is the same if the word is feminine.
The los and las are only the plural forms of the other articles and would be places in front of plural words. For example: las casas, los chicos. Un, una, unos and unas are known as indefinite articles because they don't specify any one particular thing. Their English equivalents are 'a' and 'some'. They work just like the articles we just study by placing them in front of the nouns but with a little difference they will agree in both number and gender.

For example we will have un perro (A dog) or the plural form unas mesas (Some tables). We hope you enjoy this lesson and we encourage you to practise every day and refer this lesson as many times as you need.
