Today's word of the day is 'acuerdo'. This means a variety of things but is most commonly used to agree to something.

Here are some examples of how to use this word:


  • El ayuntamiento llegó a un acuerdo con la constructora.

              The council made an agreement with the constructors.



  • Los dos bandos en la guerra firmaron un tratado de paz.

               Both sides on the war signed a peace agreement.


The verb acordar means to agree, for example:


  • Acordamos que no ibamos a volver a ese sitio jamás.

                We agreed to not go back to that place again.


If the verb is used reflexively then it changes the meaning completely:


  • Me acuerdo de haber estado allí antes.

                I remember having been there before.
