    Functioning as adjectives, 'este' - is used with singular masculine nouns, while 'esta' is used with singular feminine nouns.

    The plural for masculine nouns is estos; while estas is the feminine plural

    Please note: este/estra means the object or person is close to the person speaking - ese (m) esa (f) for object closer, aquel (m) aquella (f) for objects/persons distance from the person speaking.

    Functioning alone as nouns, they require an accent above the 'e' = é e.g., éste/ésta

    The same é is required for ése/ésa and aquél/ aquélla when functioning (independently) and nouns.

    Hope that is clearer than mud!!!

    این کلمات قبل از اسم ها به کار می روند و برای این که بدونیم که از کدومشون استفاده کنیم باید بدونیم که اسمی که قراره بعدشون بیاد، مذکر هستش یا مونت. برای فهمیدن این که یک اسم مذکر یا مونث راهی وجود نداره که همیشه جواب بده و بیشتر آدم رو گیج می کنند . بهترین کار این هست که جنسیت لغات رو به ذهن بسپارید

    موفق باشید
