With the countdown on for the launch of Red Angle’s first book – Spanish Twins – we’re going to cover four Spanish Twins that you can use on the jobsite tomorrow.
What is a Spanish Twin? Spanish Twins are words that are the same – or nearly the same – in English and Spanish. They are twins. Spanish Twins scream from the rooftop, “If you are fluent in English, you already know a ton of Spanish!” You know what the words mean, you know how to spell them, you just need to tweak the pronunciation.
- Cone :: Cono (KOH-noh)
- Barricade :: Barricada (bah-ree-KAH-dah)
- Gasoline :: Gasolina (gah-soh-LEE-nah)
- Concrete :: Concreto (kohn-KRAY-toh)
Add this in front of the Spanish Twin to get someone’s atención:
