Spanish in the Garden

 

Even if you're not a native Spanish speaker, you undoubtedly have Spanish-speaking colleagues, workers and friends. So how good is your conversational Spanish? Especially where it comes to trees (arboles), shrubs (arbolitos) and flowers (flores)? Learn the basics of how to communicate and create relationships in both languages.
