Have you ever paid attention to the first words they teach you in introductory Spanish classes? Caminar: to walk; alright, I can see that being used somewhat frequently I guess. Hablar: to talk; okay, that’s a good word to know—more so I can say “No hablo español” than to actually learn to hablar español, but still a good word nonetheless. But my question is this: how do estudiar and patinar enter the picture? Every sentence you’re told to translate is about how you study all the time, how you should study all the time, or how you got a bad grade because you didn’t study with Guillermo in la biblioteca because you were out skating at el parque. So now even my Spanish book gets to patronize me. Awesome.
