Spanish Definite Article (The)

There are four ways to say the word THE in Spanish.
La goes with feminine singular nouns
El goes with masculine singular nouns
Las goes with feminine plural nouns and
Los goes with masculine plural nouns

Each Spanish article has to agree in gender with the noun that it goes with. But I find it easier to say:  The article and noun have to agree sexually and in how many (singular or plural) It might be a good time to mention that the adjective has to agree sexually and in number too.
If it helps you to remember, think of the article, noun, and adjective having a same-sex threesome. I tried to make the Os look masculine  and the As  look feminine to make my point.
