Right now, one of his favorite words is "queso." It is worth a lot of points when he is playing Words with Friends.Queso is the Spanish word for cheese.But in the United States, people understand this as melted cheese one might order at a Mexican restaurant or pour on top of tortilla chips.
现在,他最喜欢的一个词就是“queso”。他在玩填词游戏时值很多分。questo是西班牙语的奶酪。但在美国,人们把它理解成一种融化的奶酪,可以在墨西哥餐厅里吃到,或者是倒在玉米薄饼上东西。
