One of the great things about learning Spanish is that, the more you learn, the more you expand your mind.
For instance, there are numerous words that exist in Spanish that don’t have a direct English translation. For others, the words may mean something direct in English (literally) but they mean something completely different when spoken in Spanish (context).
Here are some wonderfully unique Spanish words that’ll introduce you to a world of new ideas and expressions.
Some of the first things we teach our children are their colors right? Have you ever seen a car that isn’t quite gray but it isn’t quite brown either?
