This week's culture tidbit deals with algo that I hear Americans (Gringos) do siempre and it drives me crazy. Quería hacerles saber about it so you'll know how to do it correctamente. Instead of dealing with the Latin culture itself, this lesson deals with una frase en español that has been integrated into nuestra cultura.

A menudo, in everyday life, someone will unintentionally do something a nosotros. Many Americans responderán by saying "No problem" en lo que piensan is the Spanish language -- "No problemo". ¡Esto es equivocado! Contrary to popular belief (at least by some people), you don't create palabras de español by tacking on an "o" at the end of English words. This is an incorrect translation technique. This little "'o'-at-the-end-of-a-word" trick works in only a few cases, but with most words no funciona. La manera correcta to say "No problem" is -- are you ready for this? "No hay problema". (The word "hay" se pronuncia "eye" - the "h" is silent). Try saying "No hay problema" en voz alta.

Another word que mucha gente piensa is a Spanish wor d, pero no es, is the word "bambino". Many people use it for the word "baby" y piensan que es español. To let the truth out of the bag, the word "bambino" does mean "baby" or "child", however, it isn't Spanish, es Italiano! The Spanish word for baby is "bebé".

I wanted to let you know acerca de estas palabras this week so you can become more aware of the culture que le rodea and not make these common errors. Nada podría hacerme más feliz than to see "No problemo" and "bambino" as a "Spanish" words slowly die de nuestra cultura. Please help por pasar la voz and forwarding this e-mail a otros so they, like you, may become culturally aware.
