We oftentimes share news that is bizarre or news that easily stands out in our minds. But what kind of news are you sharing when conveying it in Spanish? Bizarro? In fact, in Spanish, bizarre means someone who is brave, not necessarily strange. The equivalent of “bizarre” in English to mean odd, or strange in Spanish is conveyed better by using the words extraño or estrafalario.

Next time, decide if your news or strange or about someone brave before you share it in Spanish!
