WHAT IS THIS?

 30

Qué es esto?

   What is this?
 31  Esto es un... (masculin)    This is a...
 32  Esto es una... (feminin)    
 *

 In Spanish every noun is either feminine or masculin,
and (ussually) can be recognized by the ending of the noun
Most feminin nouns end in "a", e.g. la messa, la cassa, la monta
ña,
la mañana; but can have different endings as well, in which case can
be recognized by the definite article "la", e.g. la mujer

The definite article for feminine nouns is "la"
.... for masculine "el", e.g. el hombre, el papel, el señor...

NOTE: Do not stress about using the correct gender for nouns -
the main thing in the beginning is to get understood.  Every
non-english speaker will be super happy if you simply understand
them, or if you make yourself understood.

   
 33  Estos son... (masculin)    These are...
 34  Estas son... (feminin)    These are...
 35  Esto es el documento.    This is the document.
 36  Estos son los documentos.    These are the documents
 37 Esta es la oficina.    This is the ofice.
 38  Estas son las oficianas    These are the offices.
