How to know when I can use the female (la) or the masculine (el) articles in Spanish?
In Spanish nouns can be either feminine or masculine. It is better to learn the article attached to the noun from the beginning. For instance, blanket - la cobija or bus - el camion. Usually, Spanish nouns that end in "o" will be masculine so you would use "el" and Spanish nouns that end in "a" will be feminine. However, this is not an exact rule, so that is why it is better to learn the Spanish nouns attached with its correspondent masculine or feminine article.

Student sometimes plagiarize by accident because they do not know exactly what this is and how to avoid it. The question might be: "How do I avoid plagiarism?
You avoid plagiarism by taking good notes. Making sure you know what ideas are yours and which are not. You must always give credit to other people's words and works by properly citing the owners of those words and works. Any opinion or fact that you include in your writing that does not belong to you, you must cite the right source. There are different citation styles; your instructor will let you know which style you must use and once you know this, you must contact your school librarian to guide you on this. For now, focus on good note-taking and make sure you include the title of the article, the author, copyright year, and name of the resource from which you are gathering information.
