Last week we looked at some basic car vocabulary in Spanish. We hopped inside the vehicle, and reviewed some new words. Now, it’s time to roll! But bad news, the car won’t start, so we need to get under the hood. Watch this short Spanish video lesson to learn some basic vocabulary related to the engine of a car.

You probably noticed that three of the new words are very similar to their equivalent in English (cognates), which makes them even easier to learn.

If you are not enrolled with us already, why not consider taking some Spanish classes online to complement your studies? Take a peek at the upper basic level Spanish lessons included in our curriculum, and browse through the rest of our website to see what we have to offer.

  3. Hola! on the lesson “types of tea” before Juan Carlos gives the correct way to order tea, he says something about an error. I cannot make out exactly what he says. It is right after the man orders the tea in the wrong manner. Could you please put captions on this video or give an explanation in English after the words “frequentemente”. Muchas gracias

  4. Hi Leah,
    Thanks for writing in with a great question. Unfortunately this is one of our oldest videos from a few years back but I would be happy to explain what he is saying. “Cometemos un error cuando pedimos 1 té de manzanilla. Lo correcto es pedir una infusión de manzanilla o, por ejemplo, una infusión de anís. Ahora si quieres beber un té puedes pedir por favor un te limón o también puedes pedir un te canela y clavo o simplemente puedes pedir un té.” The difference here is that in Spanish, as opposed to English, we do not call herbal drinks tea but infusions. This would include chamomile, mint, lemongrass or any other type of tea not made from tea leaves.

  5. That is a good tip particularly for those that are new in the blogsphere. Many thanks for sharing this one.A must read article!
