Thanks to Kevin Macleod for the music in today’s lesson! Wow, it sounds like the rain can get pretty intense in Costa Rica! I guess that’s why much of the country is part of “la selva tropical” (Rainforest). Anyone gone on a trip or lived in a tropical region such as Costa Rica where the rain can get really extreme? What was it like?

Thanks a lot for the positive feedback! We appreciate it.

I can’t think of a phrase particular to pets with reference to the rain, but I like the expression “llover a cántaros”, which is literally “to rain pitchers”… Hehe…

I think, as long as we’re talking about the rain, we should also point out that the verb “llover” is “un verbo terciopersonal o impersonal”. This means that it’s only ever conjugated to the third person singular form, not matter the tense or mood.

So in todays conversation we heard a phrase in English and a phrase in Spanish that seem related.

“It’s raining cats and dogs.” and “Son pelitos de gato” Does anyone know any other phrases in Spanish that concerns raining and pets?
