The family in Spanish? The relatives? You can get confused. Unless if you take seriously some readings as the present one. In the first paragraph you can learn the close family members and to see how to speak about family relations. In the second one, you can study the family-in-law vocabulary.
The words for male relatives halt in -o, the female ones end in -a.
|primo / prima||cousin|
When talking about family, we´d rather talk about relationships in this manner.
|Son casados.||They are married.|
|Son marido y esposa.||They are husband and wife.|
|Tienen hijos.||They have children.|
|Es su hijo.||He is their son.|
|Es su hija.||She is their daughter.|
|Es mayor. Es el hermano mayor.||He is older. He is the big brother.|
|Es menor. Es la hermana menor.||She is younger. She is the young sister.|
|Son hermano y hermana.||They are brother and sister.|
|Es su padre.||He is their father.|
|Es su madre.||She is their mother.|
|Son sus padres.||They are their parents.|
|Son hermanos.||They are siblings.|
|Es su nieto.||He is their grandson.|
|Es su tío.||He is their uncle.|
|Es su suegra.||She is her mother-in-law.|
|Es su bebé.||She is their baby.|
|Son relativos.||They are relatives.|
|Es su cuñada.||She is his sister-in-law.|
|Son miembros de una familia.||They are members of the same family.|
These are the relatives with who one doesn't have a blood relationship.
|hija de paso||stepdaughter|
|hijo de paso||stepson|
