    embarazada = pregnant
    apenada(o) = embarassed


    Many words seem to be the same in Spanish and English, for example "actually" and "actualmente" but the meaning is different.

    actually = in fact
    actualmente = nowadays

    These words are known in Spanish and Enlgish as: "falsos amigos" "false friends" or "falsos cognados" "false cognates". In French they are "Les belles infidèles"

    "preñada", ¿no es para referirse a los animales?
