So maybe I let the kids get a little off task in class, but last week my seventh graders added to my growing list of vocabulary again. There are two different kinds of “bite” in Spanish. The examples they gave me were:
If you get bit by a bug you use the verb: picar
If you are biting into a hamburger you use the verb: morder
Alex also explained to me later that you can use “picar” to describe little bites of food. Now if only I could find a restaurant that has good hamburgers around here….
