"My son needs a small suitcase."
Translation:Mi hijo necesita una maleta pequeña.
Mi hijo would need the 3rd person singular verb form (for he, she, it, usted): necesita.
Necesito is the 1st person singular form for yo (I).
Poco means little in amount, not size: Tengo poco dinero. I have little money. (The money is not small in size. I have a small amount of it.)
That woul be saying my son needs not much suitcase, (a small amount of...) rather than a small suitcase.
I habe haki.76 same question. Is it NecesitA because unA maletA? Is the necesito taking after the suitcase instead of the son?
You would need the 3rd person singular verb form (for he, she, it, usted): necesita. Necesito is the 1st person singular form for yo (I).
I reccomend reviweing your conjugation
Because necesita is describing the object you need(maleta) which is feminine which in turn makes the descriptive feminine.
Nope, "necesitar" is a verb, which is conjugated as "necesit-o, necesit-as, -a, -amos -áis, -an". In this case, " mi hijo" is the third person of the singular, then it is "necesita"
Verbs do not ever have a gender in Spanish. Please refrain from answering questions in the discussions unless you are certain of the answer - it can cause a lot of confusion otherwise.
