Consejos
In Latin America it is considered impolite
to toss
things to each other. If you need to give
something to
a native, make sure you walk over and hand it to
them.



· Saying the word "stupid" in the English
language is
common and innocent enough. In Spanish
culture the
translation is very strong and offensive.



· Don't be offended when Latinos call you a
"gringo".
To them the word describes someone as foreign
and is not meant to degrade. The word came from
war time when American soldiers wore green
uniforms. The Mexicans knew enough to say
"green
go' in order to express their wishes for the
American
soldiers to leave.



· Latin Americans usually greet friends and
relatives
more personally than do Americans. They give
hugs,
even the men. Men usually also greet woman with
"besitos" meaning they touch cheeks while
making a kissing noise with their lips.
Woman also
greet other woman with "besitos".
These little
kisses are purely friendly and have no romantic
meaning.

If you are traveling to a Spanish country the
culture can
differ greatly from your own. Traveling can
be more
enjoyable if you understand the culture of
the place
you want to visit. We listed some tips about
Latin
America that can help you understand and avoid
misunderstandings when vacationing in their
lands. See tips in the Language Tips
section
of this newsletter!

"What's the best way to learn with the
Spanish on the
Job audio program?"



It is best to listen for a short time each
day. We
suggest 30 minutes or 1 lesson a day. Continue
listening to the same section until you have
mastered
it and then move on to the next. You will
need to listen
many times in order to internalize the new
language. If
you have the opportunity, we suggest
following along
with the listening guide. This way you are
"inputting"
the language both through listening and reading.


Each month we will highlight a question or comment from our friends & customers. Please contact us if you would like to ask or respond to a question or would like to make your "voice" heard.

We look forward to hearing from you!
