Spanish Pool Lesson: Prepositions & the Pool

It’s time to go to the pool and jump in, or va a dentro.  The pool, or la piscina, is the best place to teach, practice, or review Spanish prepositions.  Those pesky little words, prepositions, that show location can be hard to remember.  In English there are about 50, such as at, around, about, behind, beyond, in, out.
