      It was certainly a noticeable moment of progress for me when I could watch Linguiosa's videos and feel I was understanding the language. It helps that linguistics is an interest of mine.

      One more thing about “palo”… When in Zubiri, I’ll be staying at…El Palo del Avellano…just a little fun fact.

      Linguriosa's videos are fantastic. I do agree with you that some of the current changes are anything but organic. It's what happens when you mix grammar with politics 🤷🏻‍♀️ Only time will tell which changes become permanent and which disappear...

      Thanks for your post, it is important to hear from a native speaker. You referred to one phrase above that I was afraid might be rude, and you have said it is innocent, so thanks for that. On the question of language per se, my younger brother...

      I'm in Burgos and can confirm there is a large AleHop store, walked past it today. 🙂 I saw a Claire's too. I'd also like to know which kind of store to find an electric coil, as mine was left at home by mistake, and I do miss it. @Stephan the...

      A ferretería (hardware store) should have a coil. You can also check one of the Asian Bazaar type stores.

      I think you're wrong about the RAE's stance on actor. Actor is m, actriz is f,. actores is plural m/mixed/unspecified , actrices is plural f. This follows the same rules as similar spanish gendered noun. E.g. chico, chica, chicos and chicas...
