You may be more than happy to throw back a margarita and enjoy some delicious Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo (and we don’t blame you!), but do you know what actually happened on the 5th of May? Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day and it has actually become far more popular in the United States than in Mexico. Want to know why? Learn more about the holiday and celebrate in style with some Spanish holiday vocabulary in our interactive Cinco de Mayo Spanish Lesson for Beginners and our full-immersion Cinco de Mayo Spanish Lesson for Intermediate Learners.

I tried your Cinco de Mayo lesson. Got partway through, was thrown out because of hitting a wrong button I suppose, and couldn’t restart where I left off. So I had to start over and click through everything again till I got back to where I was. Moved forward A bit further, got thrown out again, don’t have the energy to punch every button again for a third time. Too bad, it seems useful! Was working on an Android phone.
@Dave Hey Dave – so sorry, this sounds frustrating! Do you remember if you got some kind of error message that kicked you out?
