Let’s discover the word “película“!

Película” means “movie”, so it’s a word that we use every day: either if you want to talk about the last movie that you watched or ask someone’s tastes, you will find it extremely useful.

¿Cuál es tu película favorita?” (“What’s your favourite movie?”) is definitely one of the most common questions we ask, so we need to get ready!
