Our Word of the Day today is an excellent one to really show off your Spanish level!


Zambullirse means to dive or plunge into water.

  • Me zambullí en la piscina en casa de mis padres.

       I dove into the pool at my parents' house.

It can also be used figuratively to describe getting engrossed or submerging yourself in something, like studying or something at work:

  • Aprender español en el extranjero es una oportunidad para zambullirte en una cultura nueva.

       Learning Spanish abroad is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture.
