Unidad 2 Etapa 1
Possessive Adjectives and Pronouns As you know, possessive adjectives show personal relationships or possession and they agree in gender and number with the nouns they describe. mi(s) --> my tu(s) --> your su(s) --> his/hers nuestro(a/os/as) --> our
Possessive adjectives also have a long form which they are more expressive. Possessives Long Form – Singularmío(a) tuyo(a) suyo(a) nuestro(a) suyo(a) Possessives Long Form – Plural míos(as) tuyos(as) suyos(as) nuestros(as) suyos(as)
Unlike the regular(or short) form, the long form follows the noun. un amigo mío a friend of mine Comemos con unos amigos nuestros. We are eating with some friends of ours.
Possessive Adjectives and Pronouns Possessive also show personal relationships. When forming a possessive pronoun: Use the long form of the possessive adjective. Add EL, LA, LOS, LAS according to the gender and number of the noun it replaces.
Sus viajes son a diferentes lugares. His trips are to different places. Y los tuyos, ¿adónde son? And yours, where are they to?
Reflexive Pronouns and verbs You’ve already learned that you can use direct object pronouns(me, te, lo, la, nos, os, los, las) La escondo.

me escondo s te escondes se esconde nos escondemo se esconden
