The 3rd lesson is about the plural in Spanish and how to create it from the singular form. In addition, I will include a list of vocabulary about languages, nationalities, and countries. Finally, you will find some common everyday sentences. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Spanish Classes.
Knowing how to create the plural from the singular word can double the vocabulary you already know. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some grammatical rules. For example how to change the word "book" to "books" or "woman" to "women".
In Spanish, it is very simple to form the plural. Just add (-s) to words ending in a vowel: (chica becomes chicas) and (-es) to words ending in a consonant: (señor becomes señores) . Here are some examples:
There are some small exceptions. If a noun ends in (-z), you will need to add (-es) and change the z to c.
Below is a list of singular words and their plural equivalent. I included examples about nature as well as about humans. The table contains 3 columns (English, Spanish, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
Now we will try to implement some of the words above into full Spanish sentences. That way you will be able to see how both forms are used when embedded in a structure.

Below is a list of 50 words related to languages, nationalities, and countries. If you can memorize them by heart, you will be able to have a good conversation about how many languages you speak or where you came from.
|British (nationality)||inglés británico|
|Britain (country)||Gran Bretaña|
|America (country)||Estados Unidos|
