Word for the Travel Wise (08/09/06)

Inspiration can come from just about anywhere. It can come from a Discovery Channel program, a nature hike through a famed national park or from the entrance of a local store. This is a word most of you have probably seen at one point or another, but never took much time to sound out or ignored completely. (The English speaking mind can do that with ease sometimes.)

Today’s word is a Spanish word from Mexico:

jalar – pull

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
