Thanks for stopping by Spanish Blog 365!


It’s workplace Spanish day…Es lunes
Even if you don’t work in this field you still need a haircut once in awhile. I know a person who goes to a Spanish-speaking hairdresser as a way to practice her Spanish.
Perhaps when you go off to a Spanish-speaking country for 6 months, you’ll need to get your hair cut and these words will help you get just what you want.
