Word for the Travel Wise (10/14/06)

Panama FlagEven though it was only this past February I spent three weeks in the Caribbean and a year since I was in Costa Rica, thoughts of traveling somewhere in Latin America or the Carib has been swimming heavily around in my head. The question now is where to go or travel to first? I have a few ideas, but I’m certainly open to others. For instance I know very little about Panama with the exception of the famous Panama Canal. What’s up with the beaches? Worth checking out? Anyone out there been over to Isla Grande? After reading this tiny blurb from Lonely Planet it has certainly placed Panama on my list, but any additional feedback for anybody would be great!

Today’s word is a Spanish word from Panama:

isla – island

Amerispan, Cactus Language and IMAC are all good starting points to learning abroad. A free membership at Spanish Unlimited gives you the opportunity to learn a new word everyday by email, gain pen pals and hear audio of the words. Their website is actually a good resource tool for many different Spanish related topics. I won’t even begin to list some of the texts out there that could further your studies because there are entirely too many. If you know of some language books that would be useful please feel free to list them.

Past Spanish words: escalar, cercano, realidad, enfermo, jalar
