HOW TO USE A DICTIONARY:
1. Write down the English word.
2. Look up ALL the Spanish possibilities.
3. NOW, take each Spanish possibility and look it up for the PRIMARY English meaning. (There is no shortcut and you will have some surprises.)
4. Select the BEST word, based upon the "context" or exactly how the word is to be used.
We did an exercise one day just on the word "well."
bien = as in health, I'm fine/well
pues = as in uhhhh, welllll, while you are thinking
también = as well, also, too
¡vaya! = well, as in an exclamation
pozo = well, as there is a well in the desert
fuente, manantial = well as in a source of water
P.S. I have to put the car away, tuck the animals in for the night, take a bath and then I'll be back!
