Model

In "Ella era modelo," why is this not "
"Ella era modela"? Is model a masculine word regardless of who is the model?

Hola Ricky,

The word "modelo" as model is invariable, as you guessed, so it will be modelo for a man and a woman, however we do need to use the appropriate article when it is needed:

"La modelo llevaba un vestido azul largo" (it refers to a girl/woman)

"El modelo llevaba una chaqueta vaquera" (it refers to a guy/man)

Saludos

Inma
