Spanish or English by Denise Doty

It may be somewhat of a drama to tell the difference between English and Spanish. You’ll need to be a detective. Be sensible and keep your humor. Attack your work with vigor, but remember to be flexible. The words may be notable or variable or even improbable.  The words run from popular to irregular, singular to plural. Whether you be a doctor, a conductor, an auditor or candlestick maker, remember the credo:  Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
