Articles (Indefinite) – Exercises

See the lesson on articles

Below, you’ll see a list of English nouns and a list of Spanish nouns. See if you can match the word to its correct translation (the words are cognates, which means they have a common origin, and you should be able to make a pretty good guess about which word means what). Then, choose the correct indefinite article for the noun.

*Remember: when a noun ends in an a, that usually means it’s feminine. When it ends in an o, that usually means it’s masculine. Sometimes, though, there are exceptions, and when the noun doesn’t end in either of those letters, you need to double-check online. If you see an asterisk (*) symbol next to a word, you know its article might not be what you’d expect!
*Hint: If you need help with some of the words, check the household vocabulary page.
