''El aula'' o ''La aula''?
l saw this word lately, and l'm confused because l've seen it in the feminine form: La aula = classroom & the masculine one El aula = classroom!
So which one is right? is it feminine or masculine?
Thank you ^_^
Aula is a feminine noun, but you say el aula. Why? Because there is a rule that if the word starts with "a" or "ha" and the accent is on the first syllable, you must use "el" regardless of gender.
Note that the plural changes to las aulas.
Some other words that this rule applies to:
el agua --> las aguas
el águila --> las águilas
el hada --> las hadas
" Aula" femenine noun" Drae. Therefore " El aula" is correct because you cannot have the two " A" sounds together, As Gintar says in his post. But when you go to plural it becomes " las aulas"
