Lesson 24: Spanish phrases using Possessive Adjectives (1&2)


Spanish phrases that use Possessive Adjectives


This lesson complements our previous lesson (Lesson 23: Spanish Possessive Pronouns). So, if you still haven’t I strongly recommend that you watch that one first.

Since I assume that you have already watched Lesson 23, I wont explain Possessive Adjectives and Possessive pronouns again. Instead, I will focus more on showing you a few simple Spanish phrases using the Spanish Possessive Adjectives that we have learnt in our previous lesson:

  • Mi camisa blanca – My white shirt
  • Mi camisa es blanca – My shirt is white
  • Tu auto nuevo – Your new car
  • Tu auto es nuevo – Your car is new
  • Su casa grande – His/her/its/your (formal) big house
  • Su casa es grande – His/her/its/your (formal) house is big
  • Nuestros pantalones cortos – Our short trousers (shorts)
  • Nuestros pantalones son cortos – Our trousers are short
  • Vuestros libros viejos – Your (plural) old books
  • Vuestros libros son viejos – Your (plural) books are old
    (“Vosotros” is the subject pronouns that is used in Spain for “you” plural. “Vuestro” is its corresponding possessive adjective)
  • Sus zapatos rotos – Your (plural) broken shoes
  • Sus zapatos están rotos – Your (plural) shoes are broken
    (“Ustedes” is the subject pronoun that is used in Latin America. “Su” is its corresponding possessive adjective. But “su” is also used to mean “their”)
  • Sus calcetines azules – Their blue socks
  • Sus calcetines son azules – Their socks are blue


In the video-lesson below I will share with you some few tips while explaining these simple Spanish phrases, and you will be able to listen how to pronounce each word correctly.
