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.
