Spanish Grammar Explained /

Other & Another

In Spanish, talking about "other things" is easy.
While in English we have "other" and "another", in Spanish we just have one form that changes depending on the noun. What a surprise, right?:
  • otro
  • otros
  • otra
  • otras
No quiero otro café, gracias.
I don't want another coffee, thank you.
Necesito otros zapatos.
I need other shoes.
Me compré otra bicicleta.
I bought myself another bike.
¿Tienes otras frutas?
Do you have other fruits?
Therefore, it's not necessary to say un otro!
