One time, one of my mexican friends named Juan Ramon told me: "Dame la dictionary," "Give me the dictionary." But it's supposed to be "Dame el diccionario." That was funny. That's how my friends talk. They even get confused about when to use la or el. So they end up saying stuff like "el key" or "la dictionary."

IF I wanted to say Forehead do I need to put the "La" in front of it? Isn't La the same as saying “The” in English?

Advanced Thanks
Yes, you should put LA before "frente". LA is an article, same as the in english. The only difference is we have masculine, femenine, plural and singular articles... oh, and neutral.

La Femenino singular
Las Femenino plural
El Masculino singular
Los Masculino plural
Lo neutro

Smile La Frente-Forehead

Frente quiere decir FRONT-- para que no te confunda usa LA osea LA Frente...

In english LA takes the places of THE... The boy's forehead is clean / The is a demonstrative article in this case that applies to the spanish article LA. LA is feminine article... example La cara, La mano, La voz etc... You can't said FRENTE talking about anything in front of you- example- frente a mi, frente a la puerta etc... Remember always to used La that is singular, Las manos plural- it demonstrates a noun... In English you said a NOUN in Spanish El NOMBRE...

A noun for a person, place or thing... El Nombre pare persona, cosa o sitio.... by the way, I'm also learning Spanish... so please! BARE with me... LOL ... Blessings and good luck... Spanish is hard
Ja, Ja, Ja...
