Discussion Guidelines

  • Spoilers should always be hidden using spoiler blur.
  • When discussing a specific section, please mention where you are in the book, ideally by chapter so people reading different versions have a clear point of reference.
  • Feel free to read ahead if it’s exciting, but please refrain from spoiling ahead of the appropriate week.
  • If you have a question about grammar, vocab, cultural things, etc - ask! That’s a welcome part of the discussion too, and other readers will be happy to help.

¡Podríamos estar muertos…o peor, expulsados!

Love coming across the famous lines in another language!

There were some great words and phrases again this week in Spanish.

Hacer un papelón - to make a fool of oneself

Ala delta - hang glider

Trampilla - trapdoor

We also learned the handle of the broomstick is called a mango, seekers are buscadores and beaters are golpeadores.
