False Friends

One of the most beautiful parts of learning Spanish when you already know English is, so many words are essentially exactly the same. In this lesson, I use pause, liquor and bank as three examples of this. “Pausa”, “licor” and “banco” respectively. But there are treacherous enemies about. False friends. These are words that look like an English word but either mean something completely different or are used in totally different situations. In this video lesson, I share two of my most memorable stores–and two of my favorite false friends.

Lifetime Membership (includes Fun with Words for free)


When you become a Lifetime Member, you pay one (low) price to get instant access to every course I currently offer PLUS every course I release in the future--including my newest one, Logical Spanish.

BUT... when I release the new course in January, I'm discontinuing the Lifetime Membership FOREVER. So this is your last chance to become a Lifetime Member!

I made the Lifetime Membership such a good deal because--back in the day--I wanted to say "thank you" -- HOOK UP -- and OVERDELIVER to everybody who supported me [relatively] early on.

Well, it's not "early on" anymore! So the Lifetime Membership is going away. Become a Lifetime Member before it does! Get all my courses (now and in the future) for one, low price.
