How to learn Spanish possesive determiners correctly?

Can you give me some advice to learn Spanish possesive? I am having trouble with this! Gracias!

What aspect of Spanish possessives do you feel you need help with? You need to expand your question somewhat before anyone can help you.


mi - my mis my (plural)

tu your

tus your (pl)

su - his,hers, theirs sus - his hers their (pl)

nuestro/nuestra ours nuestros/nuestras ours (pl)


There are many different forms of possession, please explain which ones you need help with and where. Also, sentences of problem targets would be useful.


Su can mean his, her, its, or their, depending on the context.


Possesives are almost identical to English possesives, with 1 important difference: they agree with the owned thing in number (and gender if they work like an adjective). So, "my house" is "mi casa" and "my houses" is "mis casas", "the house is mine" is "la casa es mía" and "the dogs are mine" is "los perros son míos".
