Countries in Spanish
We are going to see, several countries in Spanish; we picked those that were more common used in our classes, because listing them all, it could’ve made the lesson a bit too long, but, of course, you’re going to need to find the translation of your country, in case that the country that you come from, it is not on the list. However, the explanation applies for every single country in the world; The most important part is to understand how the Spanish is built, in the question and in the answer, and then, translating your country’s name into Spanish, will be as easy as using some to translate the name of your place.

So, get ready to understand the gender of the words, and, these nationalities in Spanish.
We have to tell that, even though now, this seems to be something really curious and interesting, it will be a very annoying part of your learning. Under our experience, probably the gender of the words, is the worst part of the language for many students. Anyway, it is just a matter of time, knowing the gender rule, to get to know them, and have it all clear in your mind, but even so, mistakes will come all the way.
In this course, we will see the difference between America, and the adjective American. You probably are thinking about the United States and its nationality.
