Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it’s time for a quick cultural insight.
Laura: If someone knocks at your door, the most common expression we use in Mexico is ¿Quién? which means “who?” If you are the one knocking, just answer with your name, unless they are familiar with your voice, then you can just say - “It’s me.”
Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and well see you in the next lesson!
Laura: Hasta pronto.
