Space in Spanish

This free audio lesson is talking about Space in Spanish.  We will cover the planets in Spanish as well as other useful vocabulary when talking about outer-space!

You are going to rocket through this lesson today – pardon the pun. Most of the names for the planets in space are virtually identical to English. In most cases however, they have a different emphasis on the pronunciation, which you need to master. Just like in English the words for planets are capitalized in Spanish.

All words that are capitalized in Spanish are also capitalized in English, but the reverse is not true – days of the week and months of the year are not capitalized for example and in titles only the first letter is honored with one.
