Let's Revise Spanish!

 

Revision

This time let’s do some really simple things — the kind of things you may already know: but trust me, if you get them right you’ll get brownie points in the exam.

Adjectives:

these are words that DESCRIBE. So anything like blue, big, ugly, lazy, happy — the list’s endless. There are TWO things to remember in Spanish:

1: the adjective normally comes after the noun (name) but in English they come before:

So, "coche blanco" isn’t "car white" in English, because we say, ‘white car’.

2: Spanish adjectives agree with male/female words and number:

So, "coches blancos" isn’t "cars whites" in English since we say, "white cars".

Basically:

add an —s onto the end of the adjective if the noun is plural.

Change an ‘o’ to an ‘a’ if the word is female

Do both if it’s a feminine plural!

Have a look at this:

Un coche blanco

2 coches blancos

Una casa blanca

2 casas blancas

Do you get what I mean?!
