La moda de hispanohablantes
  • It is common in many Spanish-speaking countries for young adults to dress more formally than do young people in the United States. This applies not only to special events but also to instances not normally associated with dressing up, such as concerts, walks in the park, or just visiting family.

  • For over 130 years, Spain used the peseta as its currency. In 2002, the euro replaced the peseta as Spain joined eleven other members of the EU to create a common currency. Euros and eurocents are similar to dollars and cents, ie 100 eurocents=1 euro. A euro coin or bill can be spent in any EU country.

  • The currencies of Bolivia, Peru, and Costa Rica are all different. Latin American countries have special names for their national currency and use different symbols as abbreviations. The official currency of Bolivia is the boliviano. The Nuevo sol is the official currency of Perú. Costa Rica’s money is called the colón. The colón comes from the name Cristobal Colón, or Christopher Columbus, who had a profound impact on the Americas. Cents in most Latin American countries are either centimos or centavos. The images on each kind of currency honor its country’s history and culture. Is this similar to currency in the US?

Many people in Spanish-speaking countries still prefer to shop in traditional specialty stores. These stores are often owned and operated by families, and customer loyalty is built over generations.


El Rastro is said to be the world’s largest flea market. Located in one of the oldest sections of Madrid, it attracts thousands of visitors every Sunday of the year.
