The flamenco is a Spanish dance, but what do they call the flamenco in Spain?

Vocabulary - Do As the Spanish Do!

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will give you a chance to learn some things that are associated with the Spanish lifestyle! Since you are learning how to speak Spanish it seems only appropriate that you learn a little more about the Spanish culture. That includes some of the foods they eat and some of their traditions.

As you will see from the vocabulary list below, some of the foods and traditions have become so well known in English that they have become part of the English language. For example, a burrito in Spanish is a burrito in English. This goes to show you how different cultures can blend in together to a point that you don’t even know where one culture ends and another culture begins. So, let’s take a look at some of this blending and some of what the Spanish do!

THAT’S SPANISH!
