    ¡Hola! In Indo-European romance languages like Spanish and French, articles meaning "the" are what indicate the gender of the noun. In Spanish, if the article "el" precedes the noun, it is masculine. For example: el perro = the dog. On the other hand, if the article "la" precedes the noun, it is feminine. For example: la casa = the house. There may be a few patterns that can also hint at a noun's gender (for example, in Spanish most nouns that end in "-o" are masculine and most that end in "-a" are feminine) but you can't always count on that as there may be exceptions.

    Although it is seldom possible to predict with certainty whether a given Spanish noun is of masculine or feminine gender, Spanish has numerous guidelines that can usually be followed. The most well-known rule or guideline is that nouns ending in -o are masculine and those ending in -a are feminine, but there are numerous exceptions to this gender rule, especially for those ending in -a
