    Most take -er, -or or -ar endings. For the most part you have to learn them as you learn the words, but dictionaries normally write these out (http://folkets-lexikon.csc.kth.se/folkets/folkets.en.html does, for instance).

    girl → flicka
    girls → flickor
    the girl → flickan
    the girls → flickorna

    boy → pojke
    boys → pojkar
    the boy → pojken
    the boys → pojkarna

    I found this site, it explains it quite well. It also has some exercises at the bottom.
