Word for the Travel Wise (05/05/06)

Mexico FlagIt's Cinco de Mayo and a Friday night as well. I'm sure a few of you are out partying if you haven't hit a happy hour or two already, so I won't bother keeping you long with today's lesson. I'm just thrilled to be feeling a tid bit better after having a yucky days long head and chest cold.  Hopefully your road to Cinco de Mayo wasn't one of the same. For all those out there having a round of drinks, please, have one for me.

Today's word is a Spanish word from Mexico:

enfermo / enferma - sick

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
