Q: When I use the Translate button in the Spanish flash cards it adds (fem) or (masc) onto my Spanish words. What does that mean? Can I remove it?

A: Spanish nouns and adjectives have a gender associated with them. Adjectives can be masculine or feminine depending on what word they are modifying, but nouns have a specified gender. We show that gender by displaying (fem) for feminine words and (masc) for masculine words. You can think of (fem) as adding "la" in front of the word, or "el" for (masc). Example: "playa (fem)" would be the same as "la playa." You can remove the gender label if you want. It will not affect whether audio is attached to that card.
