I incorrectly wrote “Mi clase española.” How does one know how to handle the differences between “the Spanish woman,” “the Spanish people,” “the Spanish food,” “the Spanish class?”

Same. I try to do better by writing, de español, in different colors correctly above it each time. I use a four color pen + different colored pen pack for this. Good luck!

Yeah it sounds right in English doesn't it. In Spanish it sounds backwards. Spanish speakers tell you the thing they are talking about first and then what it is about that thing second. So it's, the class first, clase, followed by something to describe the class, español. And 'de' ties the two together.
