Characteristics

Spanish articles, like English, have both definite and indefinite articles. There is no distinction in English articles by number or gender, but there is in Spanish articles.

The gender and number of articles in Spanish should match those of nouns. For example, if the noun is feminine plural, the article should be feminine plural.
