Champollion Posted January 6, 2014 Report Share Posted January 6, 2014 Do you understand the idea in language of False Friends? They are words that look similar in both English and Spanish, but have a DIFFERENT meaning.Example: "sensible" in Spanish doesn't mean "sensible" in English, it means "sensitive"Or "actualmente" looks like "actually" but no, it means "nowadays, right now"Confusing, right? That's why they're called False Friends, because they seem to help you out but then leave you saying the wrong thing.The most dangerous one in a pharmacy is "constipado"! And I'm not going to explain that one, language lovers, you have to check it out yourselves. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
