HOW DO YOU SAY "WIFI"?
Clearly, these days, WIFI is one of those things that we can't live without. We need it! As many posts on social media show it is at the top of our modern day Maslow hierarchy of needs! While this is a joke, we now want to be connected at home, in the hotel, in a bar and in the airport.
So, if we need it so much, can we say it properly? How do you pronounce "WIFI"?
Most Spanish people pronounce it just like it is written (WIFI=WIFFY) which is fine if you are living in Spain but if you go on a business trip to the UK, you need to prounounce "WIFI" as "WHY-FY" or "GUAY-FY". If you say "WIFFY" in the UK, people will just be confused.
Hope that helps!
