What is the difference between "son" and "es"?
"Son" is for multiple objects. (The skirts.) "Es" is for one object. (The skirt.) They are the same as "are" and "is".
That is really helpful! Thanks!
Wtfschmuck: "son" is plural and "es" single of the third person. Example:
Los gatos son negros.
El gato es negro.
How do you know when to use negro amd when to use negrasnor some other form? Spanish is so much more confusing than english....
I believe in this case it is negras because we are referring to the skirt, which is feminine. I made the same mistake and figured I'd check it out here.
Also, I believe English is actually the screwy red headed stepchild language compared to most.
I always mix up between using son , es, or eres. How do I know?
Son: (Plural) You/They are
Es: (Singular) He/She is
Eres: (Singular) You are
I wrote: "Los faldas son negros." Which is wrong, I know now. But Duolingo didn't correct negros to negras. So is negros also good?
