Painless Grammar

Changing a noun from its masculine form to the feminine form is very easy. If it ends in -o, simply change it to -a:

    el abuelo - grandfather / la abuela - grandmother
    el chico - boy / la chica - girl
    el gato - male cat / la gata - female cat
    el perro - male dog / la perra - female dog

If the noun ends in a consonant, add -a to the end and change the article to the feminine form (usually for professions, titles, etc.):

    el doctor - la doctora - doctor
    el profesor - la profesora - teacher

 

In Spanish, asking a question is a little more flexible than in English, thus you can have several ways to ask the same question. For example, the following ask "Does María speak Spanish?"

    ¿María habla español?
    ¿Habla María español?
    ¿Habla español María?

Another method of forming questions is to add a tag question to the end of a statement.

    María habla español, ¿no? - Maria speaks Spanish, doesn’t she?
    In this case, a 'yes' or 'no' answer is expected.

    María habla español, ¿verdad? - Maria speaks Spanish, right?
    Here you're expecting someone to either agree or disagree with you.
