GRAMMAR:

Possessive pronouns

Possessive pronouns are words that show to whom something belongs, such as “my” or “your.” In Spanish they agree in person with the speaker and in number and, sometimes, gender with the thing that is owned. Only “nuestro” and “vuestro” agree in gender. Possessive pronouns come before the noun, just like they do in English. The following show the different forms and their translations:

mi(s) my
tu(s) your
su(s) your (formal), his, her, their
nuestro(s) our
vuestro(s) your (plural)

Examples:

Nosotros no tenemos nuestra tarea hoy. We don’t have our homework today.
Su gato trepó el árbol del vecino. His/her cat climbed the neighbor’s tree.
Mis amigos viajaron a mi lugar favorito. My friends traveled to my favorite place.
