How much Spanish do you know?
Cognates You may know more Spanish than you think! For example, you can already recognize the meaning of some Spanish words that look like their English counterparts. These words are called cognates. Examples: pizza (pizza), restaurante (restaurant), pasaporte (passport).
Cognates (cont.) Malena is studying Spanish. Can you help her translate Spanish cognates into English? First, we will learn cognates that use the same form for both masculine and feminine gender.
Modelo 1: arrogante = arrogant
Modelo 2: competente = competent
As you see, Spanish words that end in –ante or –ente correspond to English words that end in –ant or –ent: importante = important independiente = independent
Now, follow this simple rule to find the English equivalent to these Spanish words.
