Prayer - September 10, 2013
Lord Jesus, you spent a night in prayer before you called your disciples in the beginning of our Church. The Twelve placed their faith, hope, and trust in you. May we join this group with our faith in you, with our hope in your mercy, and with our trust in your providing care. Amen. Father Bill Simmons, C.S.C.
Adjectives perform what function in a sentence?
You already know that every word in Spanish has a gender:
masculine or feminine.
El chico = masculine
El vestido (dress) = masculine
La chica = feminine
La camisa (shirt) = feminine
In English, you say “the red shirt.”
In Spanish, you need to do the following:
(This is almost always the rule in Spanish)
The shirt = la camisa.
red = rojo.
1.Gender of the noun?
La camisa = feminine
One shirt = singular.
3. I need to form the adjective to agree with the noun.
Make rojo feminine = roja.
4. Put the adjective after the noun:
La camisa roja.
Let’s try “The black pants.”
Los pantalones = pants.
Negro = black.
Los = masculine.
Los is plural, because “el” is the article for a singular masculine noun.
The adjective has to become masculine and plural.
Negro -> negros.
Adjective After = Los pantalones negros.
Your turn! Use your vocab lists to describe the following:

Using ES to describe something:
You can use “ES” plus the adjective to describe a noun.
Remember, you use “es” for one object, “son” for more than one.
