Discovering words with no English equivalent is one of the best parts of learning a new language, and with so many great Spanish ones, I thought I’d share. Also, I’ve added in more of Amy’s photos that haven’t yet made it to the blog.
1. To Saco Paco: To do something really fast and without thinking about it.
2. Mantenido: a poor, but attractive guy that attaches himself to rich women.
3. Abrigate: A command meaning “bundle up.”
4. Embalagarse: When you feel thirsty after eating too many sweets.
5. Sobremesa – The conversation you have with your family after a meal has ended.
6. Estrenar – Trying something on for the first time.
7. Vergüenza ajena – Mental discomfort surrounding the actions of someone else that doesn’t directly affect you, but is embarrassing.
8. Friolento – Someone who is very sensitive to the cold.
And there you have them! Thanks for reading.
