I'm also aware of the wierd thing about the male and female verbs, with el and la, but I don't really understand how you can classify certain things as male or female. Like how do I know what a car is? or a house?
There's no rule for things.. you just gotta learn them. Usually words (objects) ending with o (99%) are masc and use el as article and most of words (75%) ending with a use la in this case there are exceptions

house = (la) casa
car = (el) auto (arg)

Remember that spanish is widely spoken and there are different words (for one thing) according to the country.

Gracias

p.s. It'll also help me when I meet Carla next year
