In most of the Spanish-speaking world, the letter 'z' (and 'c' before 'e' and 'i') is pronounced the same as the letter 's', like an English [s]. (This dialectical property is called seseo, a play on ceceo, which means "lisp".)
In the northern part of Spain, so-called distinción is made. The letter 's' is pronounced as [s] anywhere, but the letter 'z' as well as 'c' in front of 'e' and 'i' are pronounced as [θ], an English 'th' like in "thunder".
So, most of the world says "ah-SOOL" while most of Spain says "ah-THOOL".
Hello Duolingo I don't have a question about this comment I have a comment about the horrific horror ghoul video I just watched in Spanish please don't put that garbage in my eyes. Show some discretion in your ads.
The written text is general Spanish. The speakers have a Latin American accent, particulary around Central America.
No. Most adjectives that don't end with 'o' or 'a' are gender-invariant. They stay the same for either gender.
- un vestido azul
- una chaqueta azul
- unos vestidos azules
- unas chaquetas azules
An exception to that are many national adjectives, which do get an 'a' added despite not ending with 'o': español - española, inglés - inglesa, japonés - japonesa.
Thats a direct translation, direct translations sound foolish most of the time because every language has it's own order & rules. You have to apply the rules of the english language when speaking english, just as you have to employ the rules of spanish when speaking spanish.
No because adjectives go after the noun remember? So it would be "Una chaqueta azul" for "a blue jacket".
Azul is an adjective, and you don't need a preposition to combine an adjective with a noun.
Adjectives appear usually behind the noun they refer to, unless those adjectives have a very subjective meaning - like in "un nuevo coche", where the car is not brand-new, but it's new for you. You got it recently.
Colours are generally not subjective, so in most cases you won't find them in front of the noun.
