    Sorry but my english isn´t very good, but I´m going to try;

    Good= bueno, buena, buenos, buenas (to singular, plural, male and female in English).

    Bueno= good in Spanish but only for male singular.
    Buena= good in Spanish but only for female singular

    Buenos= good in Spanish for plural and male.
    Buenas= good in Spanish for plural and female.


    Good books; (books are male in Spain so; "buenos libros")
    Good tables; (tables are female in Spain so; "buenas mesas")


    La diferencia está en el género. Buenos => masculino, buenas => femenino.
    Buenas personas = good people. Personas es femenino en español, así que usas "buenas".
    Buenos libros= good books. Libros es masculino, así que le corresponde "buenos".

    Gender of Nouns

    "Buena" is a female adjetive and "Bueno" is a male adjetive.

    Adjectives used to specify the gender of nouns:
    They are good girls/boys = Son buenas(female) chicas = Son buenos(male) chicos
    You can also use "buenas" as an informal way to say "hello" ;)
    -Buenas, ¿qué hay? = Hello, ¿what's up?
