How to Say His in Spanish
If you’d like to say “his” in Spanish, it will depend on how you’re using the word. If it’s as an adjective you’ll use “su” (singular) or “sus” (plural). If you’re using “his” as a pronoun, the correct choice would be “el suyo”. Here are a few examples to get started:
Perry estaba orgulloso de sus logros. / Perry was proud of his accomplishments.
Su bebida preferida es agua. / His favorite drink is water.
Mi hijo es más joven que el suyo. / My son in younger than his.
El libro es el suyo. / The book is his.
Although learning Spanish words may be complicated for beginners, you should always remember that you don’t have to tackle it all at once. After you have a handle on the basics, then you can slowly incorporate other words with more nuanced meanings.
Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the language, not just the words. What makes it so effective is that we prepare you to use your new language in your everyday life. So it’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them. That way, you’ll be ready to handle situations with ease and confidence.

To hone your pronunciation, you’ll need immediate feedback on your efforts. Feedback will guide you in making needed corrections. Rosetta Stone helps you dial in your pronunciation with our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine. TruAccent compares your voice to native and non-native speakers—in real-time—so you get the feedback you need for the most accurate pronunciation. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to tweak your accent as needed. TruAccent is a powerful tool for helping you learn and speak the Spanish language.
After you have learned to pronounce basic words and short phrases, it’s a natural transition to move to the longer phrases that make up so much of everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone’s brief, 10-minute lessons are built in just this way—first teaching the basics, then tackling the longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to speak Spanish with confidence.
