Welcome to the fifth Galician lesson about gender. This time we will view a list of people, feminine and masculine, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of expressions in Galician to help you practice your daily phrases.

For example: my son and daughter are students the noun [son] is masculine, while [daughter] is feminine. The following examples use gender in different ways and places to demonstrate their behavior.
