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?


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?
