					Gramática: Noun Adjective
Agreement in Spanish
 Adjectives describe nouns.
 Like articles, they match the
  gender of the noun they describe.
 In English, adjectives go before the

  noun.
  Example:
The small dog
   In Spanish, adjectives almost
    always go after the noun.
   Ejemplo:
   El perro pequeño (the dog small)
   This change will be hard for you at
    first, but you will just have to
   get used to it ☻!
   Masculine
    adjectives usually
    end in “o”.
   Ejemplo: El chico
    alto.- The tall
    boy.
   Feminine
    adjectives usually
    end in “a”.
   Ejemplo: La chica
    alta.- The tall
    girl.
   Most adjectives that end with “e”
    match both genders.
   Ejemplos:
       El chico inteligente.
       La chica inteligente.
   Most adjectives that end with a
    consonant also match both
    genders.
   Ejemplos:
       El chico joven.
       La chica joven.
   Sometimes you have to add an “a”
    to the adjective to make it
    feminine.
   Ejemplos:
       El chico trabajador.- hardworking
       La chica trabajadora.
Plural adjectives
   If the noun is singular, then the adjective is
    singular.
   La camisa amarilla es bonita.

   Additionally, unlike English, in Spanish, if the
    noun is plural, the adjective must be plural
    also.
   The yellow shirts are pretty.
   Las camisas amarillas son bonitas.
