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|
