Talking about internet in Spanish
I will first give you some questions, ok maybe just one, but it is really important nowadays…
¿Cúal es tu correo electrónico? What is your email address?
This is something you need to learn, a few years back it was common to ask ¿Tienes correo electrónico? Meaning “Do you have email address?”-But really…who does not have one today?
Here the important thing you need to know is the alphabet because probably you will need to spell your email and you basic thing
@–> arroba and .–> punto
If you are one of the unlucky ones and your email has too many things you might also need
/ –> barra or _–> barra baja, maybe even – –> guión
Some other questions could be
¿Utilizas mucho internet? Do you use internet a lot?
¿Eres bueno con las nuevas tecnologías? Are you good with new technologies?
Ok seen that let’s start for the basic words, the basic you need to get involved in this digi-world

As you see it is not as difficult as many words as “ventana” are the same we use in our normal life too and you have used before, you just need to put them in context 🙂
AH! #importantNote wi-fi, as it is one of the first questions you probably ask in a bar, restaurant, hotel…etc…wi-fi is wifi, yeah easy! But do not forget the Spanish pronunciation 🙂
If you have any questions about other words related with internet..please fire away! Leave a comment below and I will reply you straight away,
HOMEWORK-the homework for this week is pretty much a challenge! I challenge you to change the language either of your phone or your computer, -or WTH! Both of them! Change your actual language in your Spanish, now that you have read once (at least in this article) the words is important you get familiar with them, and seeing them day in and day out will help…and think about it, will it be that different? You probably know by heart the actions on your phone, you will just see them in Spanish, which is a good learning practice 🙂
Come over to the comments and let me know if you are going to try or even if you already have done it and how it went .
Looking forward to reading your comment!
