please help me with spanish Descriptive adjectives?

Read the names and origins of the people in this tour group. Then create sentences saying what city they are from and what their nationalities are.

here is an example.

You see: Álvaro Estrada / Miami, Estados Unidos

You write: Álvaro Estrada es de Miami. Es estadounidense.

Lucy y Lee Hung / Pekín, China

this is what I put:Lucy y Lee Hung son de Pekín. Es chinos.

Pierre y Marie Lebrun / Montreal, Canadá

this is what I put: Pierre y Marie Lebrun son de Montreal. Es canadienses.

Andrés y Patricia Padilla / La Habana, Cuba

this is what I put: Andrés y Patricia Padilla son de La Habana. Es cubanos.

For all of these I just got the "Es" part wrong.

    Andrés y Patricia Padilla son de La Habana. Son cubanos.

    Yes, you only got that part wrong. All the subjects are formed by two different people, and that´s why you have to use the verb SER with the third person of the plural. Ellos son (they are). The adjective form is very easy. -o if it´s a singular male; -a if it´s a singular female; -os for plural males and -as for plural females.
