Abarcar – My Spanish Word Of The Day 2/19/2017

¡Buenos Días!

My Spanish word of the day is:

abarcar

to take in

I found my Spanish word of the day at Lo Mejor De Viajar by Sandra.  She has written a blog post about her top ten trips around the world and chooses the natural parks of the western United States as #1.  In Top 10 Mis Viajes Favoritos, Sandra writes: “Los parques de USA son indescriptibles y por muchas fotos que veas no puedes llegar a imaginar la inmensidad que abarcan.”  Her favorite national park is Monument Valley.

Here are some example sentences using abarcar.

La vista desde el mirador abarca todo el valle. (The view from the viewpoint takes in the entire valley.)

El parque natural abarca un territorio de más de 2.800 hectáreas. (The natural reserve takes in a terretory of 2,800 hectares.)

¡Hasta Luego!
