Practice saying each word along with the spelling. In addition, pay close attention to whether the word is a masculine word or a feminine word. As you can see, the Spanish word for water is agua. Most Spanish words that end in the letter a are feminine but this is one of the exception words. Because it is an exception word, you will have to memorize its gender to use it correctly. If you were ever to say la agua it would be wrong. It must be said as el agua.
