¿"PESADO" EN INGLÉS?
The temptation to translate "pesado" as "heavy" is obvious but incorrect. The word "heavy" can be used in cases where something weighs a lot or as a description of the weather: "heavy rain" but otherwise is fairly limited.
What I would like to focus on here are situations where you want to say that someone or something is "pesado." The word "heavy" can be used in such cases although I hear it all the time with my students. A much better alternative is: "annoying". E.g. He tries to speak to me all the time; he is very annoying".
I hope that helps! If you are interested in AVOIDING more Spanglish mistakes then you can check out my 5-star rated book "365 consejos para mejorar tu inglés" on Amazon!
