The Spanish plural form is formed by adding an -s or -es to the noun ending. The definite articles which indicate the plural form are los for the masculine and las for the feminine.
|Singular nouns endings||Plural nouns endings||Singular form||Plural form|
|vowel||-s||El gato (cat)||Los gatos (cats)|
|consonant||-es||El reloj (clock)||Los relojes (clocks)|
|-z||-ces||El lápiz (pencil)||Los lápices (pencil)|
El jabalí (wild boar)
El tabú (taboo)
Los jabalís / Los jabalíes (wild boars)
Los tabús / Los tabúes (taboos)
Nouns with the accent mark on the last syllable lose the accent mark.
When it comes to the plural form, there are some irregular group of words:
The los form of the definite article identifies the plural form of all the days of the week ending in -s.
For compouns words, the plural ending has to be added only to the first element.
El coche cama / Los coches cama (sleeping car / sleeping cars)
Some Spanish nouns are always plural.
Unlike English, when referring to parts of the body, items of personal hygiene and clothing, you should use the singular form in statements such as the following ones:
Lavaos la cara! (Wash your faces!)
Se ponen la falda. (They put on their skirts.)

Hello, Spanish learner! I am Isabel, your Spanish teacher. I am a professional online Spanish teacher for 3 years. I am a native speaker from... Colombia. My lessons are completely in Spanish because I want you to speak as much as possible. During my lessons, we will focus on conversation and pronunciation. But a typical lesson also contains a vocabulary topic and a grammar topic. I will focus on your needs and your mistakes to improve your Spanish as quickly as possible. In the first lesson, we will do a level test to check your current level (CEFR A1, A2, B1, B2, C1) If you would like to improve your Spanish, learn more about the South American culture, gastronomy and traditions, I am your teacher! Or if you just want to talk in Spanish, about any subject you like, I would be happy to meet you online. Send me a message and I will provide you a 30-minute free trial lesson! See you online on Skype. Your Spanish teacher, Isabel Read more
Me as a Teacher I am a Serbian native speaker and a language teacher. I have been teaching online for 5 years. I live in Belgrade. I've been... teaching online for 5 years (officially). I love teaching because it's a dynamic and an interesting job. You can teach your students and you can learn from them as well. The happiness and joy of the student + their progresses with their target language = my biggest prize (so my students are the ones who motivate me to work better)and I try to combine: a bit of reading, a bit of writing, a bit of conversation, a bit of grammar and a bit of listening by using different resources. About Me My favorite topics are: 1. Travelling , 2. Foreign languages, 3. TV programs, 4. Films and TV series, 5. Culture, 6. sport, 7. IT, 8. Science My hobbies are: learning foreign languages, horse- riding, reading, travelling, ... I am open-minded, flexible and very positive. If you come up with something interesting to talk about, please, don't hesitate to suggest me and I'll gladly discuss with you about that. I visited: Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia and Slovenia. My Lessons & Teaching Style Firstly, I test the level of the target language... I have two parts: 1) Conversational part (here I check their vocabulary and their fluency + I find out their language goals and their needs) 2) Writing part (with that I focus much more on grammar and spelling) For each part, I take notes (I have my notebook for that). Secondly, I personalize my lessons to their goals and needs. I can cover a lot of topics: business, travelling, culture, etc. My Teaching Material Text Documents Audio Recordings Images and Visuals Video News Articles and Magazines Quizzes Example Test Templates Graphs and Charts Homework Assignments PowerPoint Presentations Read more
