Have you gone through Masculine and Feminine in Spanish?

If you are struggling with Masculine and feminine in Spanish, this nice video tutorial will help you.

As in other languages, in Spanish nouns have a gender.

So objects are considered masculine or feminine and that determines the endings of the nouns.

Therefore, depending on the endings you can understand if a noun is feminine or masculine.

Let’s see how it works!

O endings are going to belong to masculine words.

El perro –> The dog

Whereas A endings are going to be feminine words.

La casa –> The house

However there are other endings that are related to the masculine gender.

Let’s see some of them.


El viaje –> The trip


El calor –> The heat


El cajón –> The drawer


El problema –> The problem


El cromosoma –> The chromosome

On the other hand there are other endings related to feminine.

Let’s see them.


La canción –> The song


La pasión –> The passion


La verdad –> The truth


La vejez –> The old age

We have to keep in mind that E endings are going to be masculine or feminine.

El peine –> The brush

La nube –> the cloud

The same happens also with consonant endings.

La miel –> The honey

El árbol –> The tree

Besides these rules we have other words that don’t follow them.

For example we have O ending words that are not masculine but feminine.

La mano –> The hand

The same happens with A ending words: some of them are not feminine, they are masculine.

El mapa –> The map
