A short and enjoyable study of 120 English words and their pair companions in the Spanish language. These pairs are called cognates.
Each English word shows its meaning, an example sentence that contains the word, the approximate date it appeared as part of the English language and its probable origin. The corresponding Spanish word is then introduced.
The words are taken from the suggested lists for graduate candidates that need to take the GRE test for entry into a postgraduate course in the US.
Cognate awareness is a great language bridge for both Spanish and English speakers. These short lists are presented in an interesting way that avoids the traditional experience of reviewing a dictionary.
It is hoped that this study is amusing, enjoyable and enriching!
