"My shoes are white."
Translation:Mis zapatos son blancos.
If the color is a description of a plural noun then the color has to be made plural.
To add to rocko's point "In Spanish the adjective has to match the singular or plural version of the noun."
In this case the colour is an adjective because it's describing something about the noun
Okay. I've taken four semesters of spanish, and i STILL can't distinguish when to use "estar" vs "ser"
You use estar when something is temporary, like location and feelings. Use ser when something is permanent, like occupation, characteristics, where you are from and relationships. You also use ser for the date & time.
"mi zapato", "mis zapatos" "mis" is used when you posses a plural thing.
Arent shoes a singular concept? If i say get my shoe please no one would bring you one shoe.
When can you make it feminine? I thought you could say "zapatas" (and Blancas to match)
Never can you make it feminine. Things only have one gender, its adjectives who's gender change according to the noun. "Shoe" are always masculine
I wrote mi zapatos es blanco, and i presses the word shoes and its supposed to be zapatos but it was wrong.
