Put on your thinking caps! Grab a pen and paper, and match nouns with their indefinite articles in a paragraph exercise. Then mix it up in a speaking activity that combines indefinite and definite articles in this Spanish lesson.

Using Spanish Indefinite Articles: Practice Activity

Hola! Time to put on your thinking caps! Un. Una. Unos. Unas. El. La. Los. Las. Today we're doing four practice activities. First, we'll match indefinite articles with the nouns they modify in a paragraph. Then we'll mix it up by using definite and indefinite articles with pictures and words in a speaking exercise. We'll also double check everything for meaning and definition. Vamos! It's going to be fun!

El. La. Los. Las. Our definite articles all mean 'the' and must agree in gender and number.

Un. Una. Unos. Unas. Our 'indefinite articles' mean 'a' or 'a few,' and also must agree in gender and number.

Practice #1 - Fill-in-the-Blank - Indefinite Articles

Okay! Vamos! In this section, you're going to complete the following paragraph with the correct indefinite articles. If you want, pause the video now, grab a pen and paper, and fill in the blanks with un, una, unos, or unas.

Yo tengo (I have) _ casa que (that) es muy bonita (very nice). Primero (first), tiene (it has) _ puerta grande y roja (big and red)! Tiene _ sala con _ cortinas, _ mesitas, y _ lámparas. En la cocina hay _ estufa, _horno, _ refrigerador, y _ congelador. La casa también (also) tiene _ oficina. En la oficina, hay _ estantes, _ escritorio, _ silla, y _ pared muy alta (tall). El dormitorio es grande también (also), y tiene _ despertador, _ cama, _ espejo, y _ cuadros. Y claro (of course) que hay _ baño en la casa! Allí hay _ lavabo, _ retrete, y _ ducha.

Bien! How did you do? Let's see!

Yo tengo (I have) una casa que (that) es muy bonita (very nice). Primero (first), tiene (it has) una puerta grande y roja (big and red). Tiene una sala con unas cortinas, unas mesitas, y unas lámparas. En la cocina, hay una estufa, un horno, un refrigerador, y un congelador. La casa también (also) tiene una oficina. En la oficina, hay unos estantes, un escritorio, una silla, y una pared muy alta (tall). El dormitorio es grande también, y tiene un despertador, una cama, un espejo, y unos cuadros. Y claro (of course) que hay un baño en la casa. Allí hay un lavabo, un retrete, y una ducha.

Fantástico!

Practice #2 - Speaking - Indefinite Articles

Now I'm going to say a word and you'll see a picture of that word. Then there will be a pause for you to say the indefinite article - un or una, or unos or unas - that goes with that word. Then I'll say it and put it in front of the noun.

cuerpo (body) - un

barbilla (chin) - una

ojos (eyes) - unos

dedos (fingers) - unos

piernas (legs) - unas

caderas (hips) - unas

pies (feet) - unos

boca (mouth) - una

dientes (teeth) - unos

estómago (stomach) - un

manos (hands) - unas
