Spanish Nouns
on March 24, 2017

Spanish nouns are either masculine or feminine. We can establish some generalities to help you distinguish them:  Almost all Spanish nouns ending in -o are masculine, Spanish Nouns ending in -a, or -d, or -ción are usually feminine.

Spanish Adjectives

Spanish Adjectives
on March 24, 2017

Spanish adjectives are different from English adjectives in that they have to agree in number and gender with the nouns they modify. So it is very important to know the gender of the noun to use adjectives correctly. For example:                   An old compass                  =                   una brujula vieja Luckily, the rules for masculine / feminine and plural / singular of Spanish adjectives are very similar to the rules of nouns.
