Singular and Plural Nouns  

Grammar Spanish Nouns Singular and Plural Nouns

Nouns (people, places or things) in Spanish are a little different than nouns in English. That’s because in Spanish, nouns have gender. This means they can be masculine or feminine. Nouns can also be singular (one) or plural (more than one).

This is all much easier to understand when there are adjectives (words that describe) in the sentence in Spanish. The adjectives usually agree in gender and number with the nouns they describe.

Singular (one) vs. Plural (more than one)
