The benefits of a bilingual brain - Mia Nacamulli

Have we mentioned this before? Well, yes, I think we have, not that you didn't already know it.

It’s obvious that knowing more than one language can make certain things easier — like traveling or watching movies without subtitles. But are there other advantages to having a bilingual (or multilingual) brain? Mia Nacamulli details the three types of bilingual brains and shows how knowing more th...

Happy to Uruguay It was a long hard road to becoming a sovereign nation. Originally it was occupied by the Charrúa people, a nomadic indigenous tribe, for 4,000 years prior to colonization, but then the country was colonized by the Portuguese, until Spain seized the city of Montevideo as a military base giving them primary rule over the country, once free from Spanish rule they country still tossed between Argentina AND Brazil, before finally becoming their own independent nation! This beautiful country is in the southeastern part of South America and is known to be one of the most liberal nations in the world, known for their peace and lack of government corruption! Go Uruguay!

Croquemon Go: Spain invents twist on game to 'eat 'em all'

Now THIS is a game we can get behind! As the popular Nintendo smart phone game sweeps the GLOBE, one Spanish food blogger, Pepe Montford, decided to poke fun and put a more DELICIOUS spin on the craze. Hence, Croquemon Go! was created, a contest in which participants are encouraged to scour the city for the perfect croquette, take a photo, post in on social media, and the winner will be awarded a prize. Sounds a lot more tasty and valuable than hunting virtual monsters, but that's just our opinion. What do you think?

If moving around the city hunting virtual monsters isn’t really your thing, but grazing on tapas on a bar crawl is, then Croquemon Go is quite possibly the game for you.

Twitter Jumps To Defense Of Mexican Gymnast Who Was Body-Shamed

Mexican gymnast Alexa Moreno is making headlines, not only because she is making history as one of the few women to ever represent Mexico in her event at an Olympic level, but also because after a few horrendous body shaming comments the internet has come to her defense in droves! Moreno was quoted back in July as saying, “Gymnastics is a sport for strong people, you need to be dedicated, have a strong will and lots of persistency. I don’t stop until I have reached my goals ... You need to believe in yourself and fight to be able to do things no one has ever done before.” What an inspiration and a beautiful athlete!

'Send the navy to protect The Rock from Spain during Brexit'

Looks like expats aren't the only ones stuck in the middle of Brexit. The Rock of Gibraltar, a constant source of contention between Britain and Spain, is now becoming an even bigger issue. 96% of Gibraltar's residents voted to remain in the EU and now are faced with a very sticky situation as their vote was not enough to secure their homeland remaining part of the borderless nation. Spain's foreign minister proposed an addendum to allow Gibraltarians to stay in the EU market despite the British continent leaving the European Union, however the proposal was quickly shut down. Who knew the swift Brexit would be so complex! What do you think is the appropriate measure for Gibraltar's residents?

A former MOD adviser has called on the Royal Navy to boost its presence in Gibraltar to protect it from Spain during Brexit negotiations.

Bull pops into high street bank during Spanish fiesta

We do not condone the Spanish bull runs to be sure.. But looks like one particular bull during the famed festival in Cheste (Eastern region of Valencia) had plans of his own. En route, during the running of the bulls, one furry friend decided to stop off at the bank on his way. Participants did hold the door for the poor creature to help him get out and on his merry way. What do you think of this long standing festival?

A bull made an unusual stop off during the annual bull run at a festival in Cheste, in the eastern region of Valencia.

Controversy as waiter denies service to man speaking Catalan

Spain has always been a nation of diversity not just cultural, but also linguistic! This has definitely been the Catalan year as the Spanish province has been pushing ahead more aggressively than ever in an ongoing battle for independence from Spain. The Spanish language in Spain has many variances to be sure, but when one waiter refused to take an order from a Catalan speaker, well it becomes a question of xenophobia not just linguistic subtelty. The Internet is continuing to debate whether or not this waiter intended to offend his patron or whether it truly was a case of "lost in translation." What do you think?

A Spanish singer has taken to social media to complain that a waiter would not serve him in Catalan, sparking a fierce debate.

Nuestro Himno

Happy fourth of July! Check out this incredibly moving Spanish version of the American National Anthem. It was translated and aired on 500 Spanish radio stations across the country in 2006 in response to anti-immigration sentiments.

Hernán Cortés and his Spanish fleet were ambushed as they were fleeing the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. Even though Cortés had forced the Aztec chief Montezuma II to persuade his people that the Spaniards had been sent by the gods, somehow the Aztec people weren't buying it. Then after a period of time and a rather contemptuous occupation of the capital, as Cortés and his troops made away with boat loads of Aztec treasure, they were attacked and subsequently lost not just their gold, but even members of the Spanish crew. The night was subsequently dubbed, La Noche Triste or the Night of Saddness. Check out this painting depicting the event by an unknown artist!

Brexit limbo: What happens next for expat Brits in Spain?

has British expats in Spain concerned, and rightfully so! The country's departure from the European Union is about to make things complicated for both Brits in Spain and Spanish in Great Britain. While interim Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy assures the expats of both nations that there will be no immediate changes for at least two years, one thing IS guaranteed and that is a lot of uncertainty. Our hearts go out to the expats who will have to undergo the often strenuous process of applying for citizenship for the now very separate nations. How do you think the two countries could help their expat citizens?

So what happens now for Brits in Spain? Nothing too dramatic, but a lot of uncertainty amid legal limbo.

FURY: Spanish flag is raised over Gibraltar as Madrid says territory will ALWAYS be theirs

Britain's upcoming decision whether or not to leave the European Union is sure causing some tension around Europe, particularly in Gibraltar. The Spanish flag was flown over the British territory as a rather bold statement that the territory would always truly be Spanish whether Britain remains in the EU or not. Naturally the flag was removed from the rock, while the conflict remains. Gibraltar has always been a hot issue when it comes to Spanish vs. British, what do you think?

A GIANT Spanish flag was unfurled on the Rock of Gibraltar today just days after the Madrid government declared the British territory was theirs - and always would be.
