Learn how to construct and use Spanish adjectives based on gender, plurality, tense, and more.

There are some slight differences between how adjectives are used in English and Spanish. In English adjectives are always spelled the same way. In Spanish there are only a few adjectives that are not changed, but most Spanish adjectives take on different spelling form. In English nouns are placed after an adjective in a complete sentence, but in Spanish the positional placement of adjective is dependent on the grammar flow. In most cases in the Spanish language adjectives are placed after the nouns. English is a slightly more flexible language when it comes to creating adjectives because of the presence of suffixes. This is a pretty significant factor to why English is viewed as a more difficult language to learn. Although native German speakers find Spanish to be tricky to learn. This might be because English is a Germanic language though.

La salsa roja es muy caliente. El perro negro es amable, pero el blanco no lo es. If you don't know your Spanish adjectives, you won't be aware that the red sauce is very hot, and you might try to pet the unfriendly white dog instead of the friendly black one. As in the other Romance languages, Spanish adjectives change form according to the noun they modify, so pay attention to the suffixes. Note: Some sheets offer English sentences to translate, while others are only in Spanish. In the multiple choice options, the same answer may apply to several sentences.
