Did you notice anything different about the Spanish word for “a” with these pets?
That’s right, one says “un”, the other says “una”.
They both mean “a” so why are they different?
In Spanish all nouns (person, place or things) are known as either Masculine or Feminine.
Read the next slide carefully as it will explain more
keywords
READ THIS SLIDE VERY CAREFULLY
Every NOUN in Spanish is either Masculine or Feminine
A noun is a person, place or thing. Any word that you can put the word “a” or “the” in front.
In Spanish, the words for “a” and “the” are different, depending on if the word is
masculine or feminine.
ENGLISH
MASCULINE
FEMININE
A
UN
UNA
THE
EL
LA
REMEMBER: It is the “word” itself which is either masculine or feminine. You might
own a female cat, but the word for “cat” in Spanish will always be masculine.
How do you know if a word is masculine or feminine? You have to learn them!!
When you learn a new noun in Spanish you will always learn it with the extra words
“UN”, “UNA”, “EL” or “LA”. Just like you did with the words for pets.
