The Spanish ban ho

The Spanish ban ho

What the heck is “ban ho”?

I promise it’s not some horrible rap song.

You get bonus points if you figure out what “ban ho” means in Spanish before you play the video.

Hint: Tiene que ver con la pronunciación. (It has to do with the pronunciation.)

    Thank Marcus, for yet another lesson to prove Spanish is simply a language one needs to speak to l e a r n, rather than learn to speak. Such a powerful reinforcer!!
