Schools in Latin American countries tend to study almost exactly the kinds of school subjects that you are already familiar with. These subjects tend to have names that are very similar to English words, which makes them easy to recall--but don’t get tricked up with all the accents that are added.
If you want to find out what someone’s favorite school subject is, you ask, ¿Cuál es tu curso favorito? The respondent would then say, Mi curso favorite es ______. Pretty straightforward isn’t it? See how easy it is to start using meaningful language structures in Spanish.
