2Number and GenderAdjectives are words which describe nouns or pronouns.In Spanish, all adjectives must agree in number and gender with the nouns they describe.Gender: nouns are either masculine or feminine.Number: nouns are either singular or plural.
3How to use adjectivesUnlike English, in Spanish, adjectives usually follow the nouns they describe.Ex. Una casa grande.(a big house)
4To describe one person or thing, use: es + a singular adjective.Ex. El chico es alto. (the boy is tall)La chica es alta. (the girl is tall)
5To describe more than one person or thing, use: Son + a plural adjective.Ex. Los libros son buenos.(the books are good)Las clases son buenas.(the classes are good)
6If you are describing a group of males and females, use: a masculine plural adjective.Ex. Mis amigos son simpaticos.(my friends are nice)
7Adjectives ending in –e or a consonant such as l, r, or n have only two forms: singular and plural. To make these adjectives plural, add –s or –es.Ex. El libro es interesante. (the book is interesting)Los libros son interesantes. (the books are interesting)La clase es dificil. (the class is difficult)Las clases son dificiles.(the classes are difficult)
