Painless Grammar

These three words in Spanish are pretty much all you need to indicate what belongs to whom. They remain the same no matter what the gender may be. Take a look:

mi - my
     mi libro - my book
     mi carro - my car

tu - your inf
     tu casa - your house
     tu computadora - your computer

su - his / her
     su gato - his / her cat
     su iPhone - his / her iPhone

su - your for
     su doctor - your doctor
     su hijo - your son


Examples

     Mi amigo es guapo. - My friend is handsome.
     ¿Dónde está tu libro? - Where is your book?
     ¿Es su niño? - Is (this) your child/boy?
     Su carro está allá. - Your car is over there.

 

Definite articles are used when talking about a specific thing (noun). In English this is indicated by the word 'the'. In Spanish there are two definite articles, but in this lesson we're focusing on just one of them: la

The articles in Spanish give you a clue as to the gender (masculine or feminine) and number (singular or plural) of a noun. In this lesson, la indicates the noun involved (dirección) is of the feminine gender. This will also hold true for just about any noun with la in front of it:

     ¿Cuál es la dirección? - What is the address?
     La dirección es Avenida Bolívar No 514. - The address is 514 Bolivar Ave.

A Few More Examples

la abuela - grandmother
la amiga - friend fem
la casa - house
la hija - daughter
la iglesia - church
la niña - girl


The Spanish word de is used in expressing possession, it's like using the 's in English.

La abuela de Ana y Pablo - Pablo and Ana's grandmother
The grandmother of Pablo and Ana

La idea de los niños - the kids' idea
The idea of the kids

La iglesia de Madrid - Madrid's church
The church of Madrid

Note: The definite article must always be placed in front of the thing that is possessed.
