English loanwords in Spanish language.


The English is the most widely used language in the world. It is spoken as a first language in several states like United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, Canada, Australia...
It is the third-most-common native language in the world. It is learned as a second language in many countries and it is the official language of the European Union and the United Nations. 



Nowadays, you know the presence of English in important contexts like international diplomacy and scientific research but it is not less present in our life when we talk about travelling, job expectations, music...

The influence of English affects as well the way we speak our language. Many English words have entered and keep entering Spanish language in different fields and we use them unwittingly following a trend.

The English words we use when speaking in our language are called loanwords or anglicismsIn some cases the words are integrated with the original spelling, while others take on a Spanish spelling.

  

Let's see some examples: 


beisbol (baseball)    /   gángster  (gangster)   /   jazz   /   pub





Now, your turn. You have to complete the list in Unit I with the English words we usually use in our daily activities.
