Definite & Indefinite Articles in Spanish

By  |  12 Comments

Sometimes using terms when you’re learning a language can hurt more than it helps. This is possibly one of those times. But we need to refer to stuff somehow, right?

In today’s lesson, I go over Definite & Indefinite Articles in Spanish. If you don’t know what those are, join the club. Even when I learned Spanish, since I learned on my own, I never knew what those were.

Bottom line, it doesn’t really matter, as long as you know how to use them.

A definite article is simple “the”. When you say “the cookie”, everybody knows exactly which cookie is being talked about. Which cookie you want is definite.

The opposite of that, an indefinite article is when you say “a cookie”. Now, you are just saying give me “a” cookie among the many cookies. Which cookie you want is NOT definite.

In the plural form, the indefinite article is basically “some” or “a few”. I explain it all in the video and of course, give you the lowdown on the Spanish equivalents.

So watch the video, do the Articles Worksheet available @ and leave me a comment or message me if you have any questions at all or need some clearing up.

    Amazing content and instruction. However, your pronunciation…in each video I viewed, truly sounds like a Gringo.
