DO YOU KNOW WHAT A "TRAFFIC JAM" IS?
So you are late for a meeting which is in English and you need to come up with an excuse about why you are late.
In your mind you think: "Ok, I know, I will say that there was an "atasco", but then suddenly you realise that you don't know how to say "atasco" in English. The answer is "traffic jam"! Many Spanish people don't know this word and when I tell them they are surprised because they think it is a bit strange because of the word "jam" (mermelada).
So remember: "traffic jam". Did you get stuck in a "traffic jam" this morning?
