STEAK OR STICK?
Many Spanish people find English words difficult to pronounce and this is an example.
So you go into a very posh (pijo) restaurant and you think to yourself that you would like to have a very nice "filete de ternera". So the waiter comes and asks you what you want and you say "I would like your very best STICK"!!!!
This mistake is VERY common. "Stick" means "palo" so you are asking for a "PALO" in a posh restaurant! You need to get this right, the correct way to say "steak" is like this: "STAY-K".
Hope that helps!
