"My grandson arrives in December."
Translation:O meu neto chega em dezembro.
Why does this sentence begin with the article "O"? I'm having trouble comprehending this.
when the possessive works as adjective, you can choose whether or not use the definite article. Here it is opitional.
Minha is used for feminine nouns and meu for masculine. If you own a dog (o cachorro) you say: "O meu cachorro". If you own a skirt (a saia) you would say: "A minha saia".
Yeah, I often have trouble with this, too. Can somebody explain this?
