Are these Spanish words correct?

Someone please tell me if this is correct:

  1. Él means "he" and ellos means "they" (masculine).

  2. Ella means "she" and ellas means "they" (feminine).

  3. El means "the" (masculine) and los means "the" (plural masculine).

  4. La means "the" (feminine) and las means "the" (plural feminine).

That is all correct.

But you should be aware that "el" is used as the feminine singular article if the next word starts with a stressed "a" sound.
