Palabras de Tecnología - Spanish Technology Words

While many hi tech words are adapted only slightly for Spanish, like the word computadora, others like cibernauta are completely different. It seemed humorous to me the first time I saw an ad in Spanish referring to web surfers as cibernautas - to me that sounds like people doing exploration on the planet Mars! Regardless of how funny some may sound...learn the words below and you'll impress your latino or Spaniard friends with your hi tech jargon.

Travel Spot of the Week

visit Equatorial Guinea and practice your Spanish!

Equatorial Guinea

Did you know that the official language of this small African country is Spanish? That's because the Spanish ruled for about 200 years, ending in 1968. A recent oil boom has given this NW African country one of the most robust economies in the region, even though little of that money seems to make it very far beyond the hands of the government officials.
