By: Davis Boyd and Jeff Shin

What is it?

Descriptive adjectives are to describe NOUN!

1. Person

2. Place

3. Thing

Adjectives thats end with an -O or an -A!!!

For feminine nouns, you put an A as the last letter of the adjectives!

Example: Ella es muy fea y bonita (She is very ugly and pretty!)

For masculine nouns, you put an O as the last letter of the adjectives!

Example: El es muy simpatico y tranquillo (He is very nice and calm!)

Also, for plural nouns (masculine or feminine) you add an S at the end of the adjectives.

Example: Ellas tienen cortas y largas piernas, pero muchos pelos en sus piernas (The girls have short and long legs, buth too much hair on their legs!)

Adjectives thats end with an -E!!!

Masculine and feminine forms are the same, except for when it is plural...

Example: Esther y Emily son inteligentes, pero gustan eructas. (Esther and Emily are smart, but they like to burp.)

Adjectives that end in a Consonant

Adjectives that ends in a consonant do not change when different gender (some do), but do change when it is plural....again.

Example: Lorenzo es muy feliz. (Lorenzo was very happy!)

Los estudiantes son muy felices porque Señor Poullard puñetazo a mis amigos. (The students were very happy because Mr. Poullard punched at my friends.)

Adjectives that ends with -or, -ón, or -in do have a feminine forms.

Example: Matrick es trabajadora y conversadora (Matrick is a hard-worker and talkative).

Ser and Estar in Adjectives

We use estar for temporary adjectives.

Example: El esta enojado (He is mad!)

We use ser for personalities

Example: Ella es simpatica (She is nice?)
