Before I end this blog post, I have three Spanish words that you may find helpful.
A few weeks ago I noticed that one of my “vecinos” (neighbors) here in Medellín, Colombia had a cast on his leg and that he was walking with crutches. Apparently, he was in an accident.
And then today I noticed that he no longer has the cast and that he is walking without the crutches. But he is walking with a cane. That’s when I thought there are 3 useful Spanish words that my customers may want to know how to say: yeso (cast), muletas (crutches) y bastón (cane).
Me han puesto un yeso en la pierna.
They put a cast on my leg.
Después del accidente, ella necesitaba muletas para poder caminar.
After the accident, she needed crutches in order to be able to walk.
El viejito usa un bastón para caminar.
The elderly man uses a cane in order to walk.
