Although to say 'chip' is the same in both languages, this is more the Americanized way of saying it. When you get deeper into the language and the Spanish culture, when you refer to potato chips it will be state as papas fritas.

Many of these Spanish treat words are quite different from their English counterpart so make sure you take enough time to really memorize them, both in how they sound and how they are spelled. Also, please do not miss any accent marks that might be needed. Remember that in order to become fluent in Spanish, you have to learn how to think in Spanish.
