1 Los adjetivos posesivos Whats the POINT? What is the ESSENTIAL QUESTION? How do I correctly express possession in Spanish using possessive adjectives (words like my, his, our, etc.)? Gramática 3.2

2 What are they? Possessive adjectives express ownership of things and people. Por ejemplo: Es mi dinero. (Its my money.) Ellos son sus maestros. (Those are his teachers.)

3 Connecting with Prior Knowledge: Like GENDER NUMBER Like other Spanish adjectives, possessive adjectives always agree in GENDER and sometimes NUMBER with the noun they describe. Ejemplo: las chicas bonitas la mujer bonita

4 Unlike Unlike other Spanish adjectives, however, possessive adjectives go directly before the noun they describe. Es mi gata. (Its my cat.) Son mis gatas. (They are my cats.)

5 MI - my TU - your (familiar) SU - your (formal) SU - his/her/its NUESTRO(A) - our VUESTRO(A) - your (plural) SPAIN SU - your (plural) SU - their SINGULAR POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES

6 Fill-in the blank with the appropriate possessive adjective: 1.________ hermano (my) 2. _______ tío (your) 3. _______ tía (your) 4. _______ primo (his) 5. _______ madre (our) 6. _______ abuela (their) PRÁCTICA

7 Fill-in the blank with the appropriate possessive adjective: 1.__ mi ___ hermano (my) 2. __ tu ___ tío (your) 3. __ tu ___ tía (your) 4. __ su ___ primo (his) 5. _ nuestra _ madre (our) 6. __ su __ abuela (their) PRÁCTICA

8 MIS – my TUS - your SUS - your (formal) SUS - his/her/its NUESTROS(AS) – our VUESTRO(AS)- your SPAIN SUS - your (plural) SUS - their PLURAL POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES

9 Fill-in the blank with the appropriate possessive adjective: 1.________ hermanos (my) 2. _______ tíos (your) 3. _______ amigos (your) 4. _______ primos (his) 5. _______ padres (our) 6. _______ abuela (their) PRÁCTICA

10 Fill-in the blank with the appropriate possessive adjective: 1.__ mis ___ hermanos (my) 2. __ tus ___ tíos (your) 3. __ tus ___ amigos (your) 4. __ sus ___ primos (his) 5. _ nuestros __ padres (our) 6. __ su ____ abuela (their)** PRÁCTICA

11 OJO: Nuestro(a) and Vuestro(a) agree in gender AND number with the nouns they describe! Poss. adjs. come directly before the noun; the use of the article is NOT necessary. Ejemplo: Es mi teléfono. Avoid saying: Es mi el teléfono.

12 How do I clarify between his/her and their? Use: NOUN + de + PERSON Ejemplo: Es su abuela. OR Es la abuela de Juan. Es la abuela de Anita. Es la abuela de ellos.

13 Keep in mind! When discussing your family you may also want to use indefinite articles. Por ejemplo: Tengo un hermano. Mi hermano tiene siete años. (I have a brother. My brother is seven years old.) AVOID saying, Tengo el hermano.

14 CONTRAST the use of possessive adjectives in Spanish and English. (How are they different?) Reflection
