commands / Mexico / objects / present tense / reflexive verbs

Today’s Vine is by Daniel Sosa from Mexico. He has become well known due to a series of Vines recreating things his mom says to him.  This is one such Vine.  Here’s the caption (I color-coded it so you can see how the Spanish words match up to English words): Como cuando tu mamá dice mal el nombre de las Apps y si la corriges se enoja más Like when your mom says the name of the app wrong, and […]

Make sure to check out […]
