Plántano is Plantain (less sweet than a regular banana and is used for cooking) and a regular sweet banana is banana in Spanish..

No. At least where I live a plantain is called "plátano macho"... "plátano" is used to refer to any kind of banana.

I learned that plátano is banana and plátano verde is a plantain, but since I live in America, that may not be 100% correct...

In Spain, plátano refers to banana. Plantains aren't really used in Spanish cuisine, so rarely would one refer to a plantain when using the word plátano. Plantaine would probably be plátano verde, as another commented.

Depends where in the Spanish-speaking world you are. Being in Europe, I knew that plátano was banana as that's the European Spanish word for it.

I'm a native Spanish speaker, just took this to test my English, actually. My first guess for carne was meat

Carne means meat as a food group. It comes from Latin - we have words like Carnivore (meat-eater, not beef-eater)

Actually carne is meat (generic). Beef is ternera.

Ternera usually refers to veal. Beef generally is carne de res.

Prawn should be accepted for shrimp. I never, ever use the word shrimp. I know they're both technically different things, but let's be a little more lenient, huh?

A few of these all depend on where you learn/speak Spanish. For example I lived in Andalucia (Southern Spain) for 6 months and you would never hear or see Camaron for shrimp, it's Gambas there. Spanish is quite different in Spain, central, and south America

I agree that latin american spanish can be different but in this case they are not. I'm glad you got to eat a lot of prawns (gambas) while in Spain, they have them in the americas as well, but usually eat shrimp (camarones).

May 14, 2014

In Latin America, jugo is juice. Only in Spain it's zumo... And there are more people in Latin American than in Spain, so... I guess juice would be more accurate... Zumo should be accepted too, though...

Except the puzzle asks you to translate from Spanish to English, which leaves zumo out.

That was easy because I'm actually Spanish \^^/ Anyway, this quiz is made on Latin Spanish. In Spanish juice would be "zumo", shrimp would be "gamba", steak would be "filete" (well could also be "bistec" but is not comonly used) and beans would be "alubias" or "judías". Anyway, great quiz ;))

Spanish and English are probably the only two languages that don't call pineapples "ananas". Piña and Pineapple look like they have the same origin.
