But road isn't correct. The Spanish word for road is carretera, as far as I was taught in school.

Saw Panadería, thought, that's a place that sells bread. So... bread store? bread shop? Is there an English name for this? Hmm, nope, can't think of one. bread market? breadket? breadery?

I'd have said 'Baker' as the 'y' seems to have dropped out of common usage these days. However, 'baker' wasn't a write in and probably should have been, even though it's a noun.

Isn't a baker a person though, not a place?

A baker works at a bakery. The "y" hasn't dropped out; you're referring to two different words.

Baño -- bath, pool, bathhouse, beach?, bathtub? AARRGH!

Level 70
Feb 20, 2019
It actually can mean bath, bathtub, or "washing place," not necessarily bathroom as in toilet. At least that is what I have been told by native Spanish speakers.

The verb bañar can mean wash (yourself) or swim in the sea, or get soaked... But el baño is pretty much always and only used to mean the loo.

Maybe that's because the Spanish word for Bridge is Ponte, not Puente.

Only missed puente and never had a spanish lesson, in most you can recognize the English counterpart and casa and playa are quite common knowledge, Pana-something I got because when out for lunch, petit pains is one of the types of bread you have to choose from.

In the U.S. we generally spell it theater, although some people like to spell it theatre if they are trying to signal higher class status. Same with gray/grey.
+1

Jun 13, 2019
It is my understanding that Theatre is universal. As to the Gray/Gray debate: "Gray" is the color of material, furniture, clothing, etc., while "Grey" is the color of one's hair. At least that was what I was taught when learning English.

I’ve seen it spelled both ways. I always thought “theater” was like a movie theater and “theatre” was like a term for plays.
+1
Level 80
Nov 22, 2019
Theater/theatre: what Quizmaster said. And since going to a play is considered more upper class than going to a movie, often what Jacktheguy said, too.

Gray/grey: I've seen them used interchangeably with no connotation connected to either regarding class or meaning.

Not sure what diva was taught, but I'm sure he wasn't one of my students.

Only got 15/24, but surprised how few people got 'Puente' – it's very similar to 'Ponte' in Italian, meaning 'bridge'.

Same here. Flew through the rest and eventually just gave up on puente after "point" "viewpoint" and other variations didn't work... Oh well, at least all those years of Spanish classes taught me at least 23 words :)

Yea, got them all. Lived in Central and South America for 8 years, so it would be shameful to miss any! The most interesting one though was "puente" that gave people trouble.That one was still in my mind from 1952 when my family drove to Mexico CIty for Christmas. I memorized the road signs which not infrequently included "Puente Angosta" "Narrow Bridge." In those days there were not always puentes built to cross the rivers. We had to drive onto a ferry which was pulled across by men with ropes.
