In this section we’ll learn about possessive adjectives, which are used to describe to whom or to what something belongs. These forms are similar to English, for example: Mi hermana es pelirroja (My sister is a redhead). Both mi/my here indicate that the sister belongs to me. However, in Spanish there are also plural forms if I have more than one of the thing, for example: Mis hermanos son inteligentes (My brothers are intelligent). And there are masculine and feminine forms for nuestro/nuestra (our) and vuestro/vuestra (your – vosotros). Remember when we learned about masculine and feminine nouns and their articles and adjectives? When learning Spanish as a second language, it is important to practice this feature and make sure the nouns and their articles and adjectives are matching.
