when to use the?(el, la, los,and las)
i'm confused when to use la, los,el and las,they said for masculine thing use el and los but some example shows el aguA ,isn't A for feminine which only use la? but why the example given use el agua but not la agua? somebody please help me,im confused and please correct me if im wrong
Why it is el agua and not la agua is a frequently asked question here. In fact I just answered basically the same question about 20 minutes ago. When a feminine noun begins with a stressed 'a' sound, the definite article la becomes el. For more information check out the links below.

Welcome to the forum! Jsanthara answered your question perfectly. You might also look at the spanish grammar main page, it's your one stop shopping mall for many questions. The link that Jsanthara mentions is there. I found this page only recently and it answers so many questions, maybe we could put it in Span¡shD!c's header.
