UtterBug Background

1In English, we call all thins - for example, table, car, book, apple - ‘it’. In Spanish, however, things are either masculine or feminine. As things don't dived into sexes the way humans and animals do, there are no physical clues to help you with their gender in Spanish. Try to learn the gender as you learn the word.
2There are lots of rules to help you. Certain endings are usually found on masculine nouns, while other endings are usually found on feminine nouns.
3The following ending is usually found on masculine nouns.
