Two ways to play in Spanish

2021-06-06T23:49:43+00:00July 28th, 2016|

Did you know Spanish has a different word for playing an instrument as opposed to playing a sport?

In English we talk about playing sports and games and we also talk about playing music.

Spanish has a different verb for each one. To play a game or a sport the verb is jugar, for example:

Music unites us in Spanish

2021-06-06T23:49:43+00:00July 11th, 2016|

Can you imagine a world without music?

Life wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t matter where you go in the world—music is something that unites us all.

It’s a great thing to talk about with your Spanish-speaking amigos too.
