I found this post a while ago and was just thinking about it. Rather than just repost the very amusing video here, I thought I would just reblog the original post in its entirety. I hope you all enjoy! I sure did.
I found this funny video via the Matador Network and it’s sooo true! If you don’t speak Spanish, basically it’s about how words can mean completely different things from one country to another.

I have a degree in Spanish but that doesn’t mean I know all there is to know about speaking, reading or understanding Spanish. Not even close! I graduated in 1982 and I did not get a job utilizing my Spanish. For our trip two years ago(I have various posts here about that trip, here’s a sample about Barcelona), I wanted to be sure that I could guide my family around Spain. And since I had not used my Spanish in a long while, I practiced and practiced by reading all kinds of things in Spanish and having a few pen pals in Spain who were learning English. We would write in both English and Spanish and then correct each other’s errors. In that process, I collected alot of resources on learning Spanish. I thought it would be nice to have all these resources in one spot. So, here we go!
Notes in Spanish
I found this site years ago and joined their forum(the forum is no longer active but one can still view the posts there). It was created by a couple who live in Madrid, Ben and Marina. I found alot of great information as well as fun videos to watch to continue learning Spanish. They do a great job and I have learned a great deal. Here are some links with helpful learning advice from their forum and podcasts:
As I find more I will update this page. If anyone reading this has other sites they visit that they like and that have helped you, feel free to leave a comment and I will update this page. Thanks! And happy learning :)
