I chose "una vaso de cafe" and that was wrong. Is that because cafe is feminine?

Vaso is glass. Taza is cup. That is why you got it wrong

un vaso de cafe. you got it wrong because vaso is masculine the a/un is tied to vaso

No, he got it wrong because of the use of 'vaso' and not 'taza'. One means glass, the other, cup. One does not have a 'glass of coffee'. They have a 'cup of coffee'.

How do you know when to say un or una?

6 months ago

https://www.duolingo.com/MsPuddles

While there are several exceptions to this rule, the general rule is if the noun ends in 'o', it is masculine so you would use 'el' or 'un'. If it ends in 'a' then you would use 'la' or 'una'. Again, there are exceptions such as 'carne'. This is feminine, but café is masculine. 'Vestido' which is a dress, is masculine, but a falda(which to me is half of a dress) is feminine. I couldn't tell you who decided or how nouns were decided to be gender specific, but in Spanish(and other languages as well), they are. A word if advice would be to make a Spanish notebook and write this down so you can study them at your leisure.

Why is it, "Un taza de cafe" and not, "Un cafe de taza"?

3 months ago

https://www.duolingo.com/TheNecromancer10

una = a

taza = cup

de = of

café = coffee


Una (A) taza (cup) de (of) café (coffee).

Also, the word taza is feminine, so its indefinite article is una instead of un.
