Did you know Spanish has a different word for playing an instrument as opposed to playing a sport?


In English, we talk about playing sports and games, and we, also, talk about playing music.


Spanish has a different verb for each one. To play a game or a sport, the verb is jugar, for example:


Jugar béisbol (to play baseball)


Jugar cartas (To play cards)


Jugar por dinero (To play for money)


Jugar means to play when you are talking about games or sport… BUT music isn’t a game or a sport.


It’s art. 


It’s fun


It’s connection.


It’s relaxing.


It gets the fiesta started.


But it’s not a game.


So it has a different verb.


The verb which means "to play" (an instrument), is tocar, for example:


tocar un instrumento


tocar la guitarra


tocar el piano


The new video shows how to burn the verb tocar into your brain and makes it forever a part of your Spanish-speaking repertoire.


Speak to learn with the video #2 on the link below. It has you talking in flowing sentences about playing the guitar, the harmonica and the piano.
