earlier it said that poeta was masculine so why is la poeta correct now?
poeta may be 'la poeta' or el poeta' depending on the gender of the poet but it is always 'poeta,' not poeto. Artista, pianista, violinista, periodista, astronauta are like poeta.
Poetisa is a female poet (it thought I said that..), though I guess it's a bit flexible.
Might be a silly question but when do you use escriben?
Escriben is the plural. Use it with ellos or ustedes, las poetas, etc. Not silly at all - how can we learn if we don't ask questions?
True True. Thankyou!
[h2]"carta" is feminine, not masculine.[/h2]
[h3]La poeta escribe una carta.[/h3]
Okay, but how was I supposed to know the poet is a man?
"La poeta" is good, too. It's the preferred answer here.
Escriba vs. Escribe. Please explain.
(Él / ella / usted) escribe = He / she / you (formal) writes.
2nd person imperative:
Escribe (tú, colloquial) = Write!
Escriba (usted, formal) = Write!
