This word's most known meaning is alliance!

But  we have included some other meanings for the word in Spanish:

 

  • Estamos valorando una alianza con la sociedad EPG.

               We are assessing the alliance with the EPG society.

 

 Apart from alliance, the word means a bond: 

 

  • La alianza de los partidos de oposición cobró fuerza.

The bond of the opposition parties gained strength.

 

And in Spain we also use it to refer to a wedding ring. Isn't this a real bond between people !?

 

  • Cuando le puso la alianza en el dedo, se emocionó.

               She became emotional when he put the wedding ring on her finger.

 

To practice this new vocabulary here is a song from Chayanne called 'Bailando dos corazones' that describes a couple dancing while falling in love.

Pronunciation:

ah-lyahn-thah
