Wow, it’s been awhile, but I’ve been still trudging away with Spanish. I think I’m somewhere around A2, at the end of the first year of a college Spanish course or the end of the second year of a high school Spanish course.
Anyways, the word for the day is ….
I kept running into this word in my reading, and just wasn’t understanding from context. I was thinking wine, but, it dawned on me that “madera” had a more general purpose, so I thought it might be “material.” At that point, I decided to dust off the dictionary and lo and behold.
a kind of material. I was half there. It’s LUMBER, WOOD.
After all of that effort, I must ask…. Why didn’t I figure that out from context?
