unas tiendas some stores unos carros some cars

But what about words that end in a consonant? That is easy. You add “ES ”to the end. Look at the examples below:

el capitán los capitanes (los kah-pee-TAH-nays) the captains
el país los países (los pye-EE-says) the countries
la ciudad las ciudades (lahs see-oo-DAH-days) the cities
