When teaching Spanish we teach that there are two articles: the definite article and the indefinite article. There are four forms of the definite article. The definite singular forms are masculine (el) and feminine (la).  The plural forms are los masculine and las feminine. 

 

       el dinero   los dineros    the money (singular) the monies (plural) 

 

       la banana  las bananas   the banana             the bananas 

 

The indefinite article in Spanish is a,an, and some.

      

       un profesor   una profesora -  a professor  (singular masculine and feminine)     unos profesores unas profesoras - some professors

       

       un lapiz - a pencil  (singular masculine)                      unos lapices - some pencils  (plural masculine)
