Re: Language schools near Viña del Mar?

The daughter of a friend is a student (of English, which she speaks and writes very well) at the Universidad de las Américas, in Viña. According to her, the university (which, I think, is American owned) is excellent in teaching Spanish, too.

Re: Languagecorps?

Re: R.I.P. U.S.A.

You can tell alot about the state of a country from its citizens' use of its language ("Among the results was ") and their diligence in fact-checking (currency is printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing; coins are struck by the Mint).

Re: Chile Business Terms... need definitions links...

Good question, G.P.! "xela", just speak with a bilingual transactional attorney in Chile; I think that one or more are associated with the owner of this website. Such a lawyer should be able to assist you and to assure that your business aims are clearly understood by your Chilean partner. It's wort...
