Spanish quotations and expressions

Spanish quotationsUna lengua natural es el archivo adonde han ido a parar las experiencias, saberes y creencias de una comunidad.* – Fernando Lázaro Carreter

Quotations occupy an interesting place in language learning. Even native speakers can’t possibly be familiar with all of the famous quotations spoken in their language, but studying them can help you gain insight into Spanish-speaking cultures while also practicing reading and learning new vocabulary and grammar. Plus being able to recognize or, even better, quote Cervantes or Allende will definitely earn you a round of compliments from your amigos españoles.
