¿"POBRECITO" EN INGLÉS?
This is an interesting one and something that I just picked up last week in a class I was having. As you can see I get most of my inspiration from my students! Sometimes I feel I should pay them, especially when I walk away with about five new ideas for my blog posts!
Anyway, I have noticed that many Spanish speakers translation "pobrecito" as "poor". The only problem with this is that when you use the word "poor" just by itself, then you will normally be referring to the fact that the person you are talking about has no money!
So instead of using the word "poor", you need to say: "poor thing".
Hope that helps!
