Lesson 2: Review

Reviewing Gender and Plurality in Spanish

Exceptions to the Rule

English isn't the only language with exceptions to grammar rules. Let's look at a couple Spanish words that are a bit out of the ordinary.

You would think that the word "agua" (water) is feminine since it ends with an "a," but it is actually a masculine word. The same concept is applied to the word "mano" (hand.) Believe it or not (even though it ends with "o") mano is actually a feminine word!
