DO YOU LIKE DESSERTS?
Spanish people often get confused between the words "dessert" and "desert". This is especially the case in terms of pronunciation.
First of all we will focus on meaning. "Dessert" = "postre" and a good way to remember the spelling is that generally people always want more "dessert" and that is why is has TWO S'. The meaning of "desert" is "desierto". In terms of the pronunciation "dessert" is pronounced: "dissert" while "desert" is pronounced: "dezert". Q
uite complex I guess but still I think it is worth knowing. Especially when you often go to business lunches and dinners.
Hope that helps!
