Lesson 16: Adjectives

In Spanish, adjectives normally come after the nouns they describe. Adjectives change both with the gender and the number of the noun they describe.

Adjectives that end in o have four forms, which change according to gender and number in exactly the same way as you would expect from nouns.

the crazy cat el gato loco
the crazy cat la gata loca
the crazy cats los gatos locos
the crazy cats las gatas locas

Adjectives that end in another vowel do not change with gender, but do change with number, by taking an -s at the end.

the big cat el gato grande
the big cat la gata grande
the big cats los gatos grandes
the big cats las gatas grandes

Most of the adjectives that end in a consonant do not change with gender either, but do change with number, by taking -es at the end. Some do change with gender however, and we will always teach you both the masculine and feminine form of these adjectives.

the social cat el gato social
the social cat la gata social
the social cats los gatos sociales
the social cats las gatas sociales
