I'm trying to explain this the best I can, but I'm having trouble.
I'm trying to explain to my cousin how a word in another language does not mean that word in English, but the same..meaning. For example:
"Jugar" translates to "to play" in English. But "jugar" does not means "To play" but means the...actual act of playing.
Obviously, I'm having a difficult time trying to explain what I mean. If anyone understands what I mean, can you find a better way to explain this, please?
