I wanted to mention FRANCE is one of the 4 European Latin Countries (the 4 are FRANCE/ITALY/SPAIN/PORTUGAL). Do you know what French phrase people in the USA and movies often use to describe that certain unknown mysterious quality that draws you to a person or that you like about something. In FRENCH it's spelled and sounds something like "jo nois sa qoui." I know my French spelling is off
but if you say "I don't know what. . ." in Spanish
it is spelled and pronounced "yo no se que"
i'm just trying to illustrate that Spanish and French do sound alike.
