Hi Finn. Welcome to the forum. These are called "demonstrative adjectives," and we have a lesson here in the Reference section that's really good.

Demonstrative Adjectives

The lesson explains the difference between:

Masculine este (this) estos (these)

Feminine esta (this) estas (these)

Masculine ese (that) esos (those)

Feminine esa (that) esas (those)

Masculine aquel (that over there) aquellos (those over there)

Feminine aquella (that over there) aquellas (those over there)
