¿CÓMO SE USA "SHAME" EN INGLÉS?
have noticed that lots of students use the word "shame" when they are trying to translate "vergüenza". Although this is not completely wrong and can be used in some circumstances, I would prefer you to use a different option.
I generally use "shame" to say "que pena". For example: "It is such a shame you can't come to the party". If you are looking for the best option for "vergüenza" I would go for the word: "embarrassed" (que no tiene nada que ver con "embarazada"!!!)
For example: I am so embarrassed when I speak English".
Hope that helps!
