Who this blog is for
* If you teach Spanish to speakers of English, you can show your students fascinating connections between the two languages that go well beyond the obvious ones. It’s one more way to provide variety in your teaching, and you aren’t likely to find this kind of information in a standard textbook.
* If you are a student of Spanish, or even a native speaker of Spanish, you can profundizar ‘deepen’ your knowledge of the language’s vocabulary, while at the same time making connections to English. Here you’ll find commonplace words as well as some rarer ones that are fun to learn about.
* If you are a Spanish-speaking student of English, you can learn a lot about the rich vocabulary of both languages—and there will always be an emphasis on connections between the two.
* If you know Latin or a Romance language other than Spanish, you’ll find plenty of connections to those languages, too, because Spanish and English have borrowed from them.
