Small part of the explanation from video:
English: Hello friends, today we will talk about the definite articles.
Spanish: Hola amigos, hoy hablaremos de los artículos definidos.
English: The definite articles in Spanish have a gender that may be masculine or feminine, and also have number that may be singular or plural.
Spanish: Los artículos definidos en español tienen género que puede ser masculino o femenino, y también tienen número que puede ser singular o plural.
English: The definite article "el" is singular masculine, the definite article "la" is singular feminine.
Spanish: El artículo definido "el" es singular masculino, el artículo definido "la" es singular femenino.
English: And, what's the plural form of the article "él"? "los" and the plural form of definite article "la" is "las". If our noun is "techo" the article is "el techo", singular, techo. Generally the words ending in "o" are masculine, "el techo", plural "los techos".
Spanish: Y ¿cuál es la forma plural del artículo "el"? "los" y la forma plural del artículo definido "la" es "las". Si nuestro nombre o sustantivo es "techo" el artículo es "el techo", singular, techo. Generalmente las palabras terminadas en "o" son masculinos, el techo, el plural los techos.
English: If our noun is "casa" it ends in "a". generally the nouns ending in "a" are feminine: "la casa" and the plural, "las casas".
Spanish: Si nuestro sustantivo es "casa" termina en "a". Generalmente los sustantivos terminados en "a" son femeninos: "la casa"; y el plural, "las casas".
English: But what happens when our noun ends in a consonant, like "comedor", it's a consonant. "Comedor" is masculine, "el comedor", the plural is "los comedores", we add two letters because "comedor" ends in a consonant.
Spanish: Pero, qué pasa cuando nuestro sustantivo termina en una consonante, como "comedor", es una consonante. "Comedor" es masculino, "el comedor", el plural es "los comedores", añadimos dos letras por que "comedor" termina en una consonante.
English: Another example, the word "jardín" ends in a consonant, so the Plural is "los jardines". Do you agree?, very well, let's go to practice!! See you soon.
Spanish: Otro ejemplo, la palabra "jardín", "el jardín" termina en una consonante, entonces el plural es "los jardines". De acuerdo? Muy bien!! Vamos a la práctica!! , hasta pronto……
