Adjectives are words that describe nouns and pronouns. There are two major differences in the way Spanish and English adjectives are used:
1. Spanish adjectives POSITION
Adjectives in Spanish generally – though not always – go after the noun: el Parlamento Europeo (the European Parliament); la Alianza Atlántica (the Atlantic Alliance); la guerra fría (the Cold War)…
2. Spanish adjectives AGREEMENT
The ending of a Spanish adjective varies depending on the noun/pronoun it’s describing, it has to be masculine or feminine, singular or plural to agree with, i.e. match, that noun/pronoun: la casa blanca (the white house); el coche blanco (the white car); unas casas blancas (some white houses), unos coches blancos (some white cars)…
