America and Americas

From: Marco
Sent on: Saturday, June 29, 2013 10:26 AM

Hi Guys,

Since 4th of july is around the corner and for those who do not know, I thought of writing this clarification:

The english word "America" translates to the spanish word "Estados Unidos" and the english word "Americas" translates to the spanish word "America".
Same goes for "american", translates to "estadounidense" and "citizen of the Americas" translates to "americano"

Many latinamerican people are very sensitive when someone talks about America in spanish, because in fact you are talking about the whole Americas. The same applies for latinamericans who are learning english.

Bueno, ya habiendo dicho esto ... que viva Estados Unidos!, vamos a celebrarlo con mucho Tequila y Pisco

Saludos,
Marco
