Muere Andrew Sachs – Manuel en Fawlty Towers…..¿qué?
The wonderful Andrew Sachs has died at the age of 86. I had no idea that he was that age! Some people remain young when you think of them.
What does this have to do with learning Spanish?
Most of my students are old enough to remember Fawlty Towers, & Manuel who sometimes only had to say ¿qué? to make us laugh. Many also have problems pronouncing que & I always use the example of Manuel to help them.
So thank you Andrew Sachs & Manuel for helping so many of my students learn to ask for queso rather than qwayso !
