¡Hola! Me llamo Diego. Your teacher has invited me today to help clarify your doubts when deciding the gender of words . There are some things you should keep in mind when doing so. Let me explain…
It’s all about understanding that in Spanish, every noun (person, place or thing) has a gender, and that in Spanish, a noun can be either masculine or feminine.
How are all of these masculine nouns alike?el abogadoel libroel chicoel baño
How are all of these feminine nouns alike?la casala maestrala chicala doctora
Masculine Nouns generally end in – o Feminine Nouns generally end in –a. el /undiccionarioel / unsecretariola / unacomputadorala / unaprofesoraIf you look at both the beginning and the ending of each line…
“el" and "la" both mean "the.“el chico / the boyla chica / the girlThese two words (el, la) are called definite articles.
One cannot predict the gender of a noun, except in the case of living creatures. Do not try to analyze the nature of the object, looking for some inherent masculinity or femininity.
