Lesson 16: Spanish articles: Definite and Indefinite Videos 1&2


Spanish articles: Definite and Indefinite articles


Like in English, Spanish articles are divided into DEFINITE ARTICLES (Artículos determinados) and INDEFINITE ARTICLES (Artículos indeterminados). Spanish articles may be just slightly more complex because they are separate in gender (male and female articles) and number (plural and singular).

Spanish definite articles:

  • El – the (masculine singular)
  • La – the (feminine singular)
  • Los – the (masculine plural)
  • Las – the (feminine plural)

Spanish indefinite articles:

  • Un – a (masculine singular)
  • Una – a (feminine singular)
  • Unos – “a” (masculine plural)
  • Unas – “a” (feminine plural)
  • Algún – some (masculine singular)
  • Alguna – some (feminine singular)
  • Algunos – some (masculine plural)
  • Algunas – some (feminine plural)


  • el niño – the boy
  • los niños – the boys
  • la niña – the girl
  • las niñas – the girls
  • un edificio – a building
  • unos edificios – buildings
  • una casa – a house
  • unas casas – houses
  • algún hombre – some man
  • algunos hombres – some men
  • alguna mujer – some woman
  • algunas mujeres – some women
