HomeQ&ANow that I am learning Spanish, my mom wont write to me in English.

Now that I am learning Spanish, my mom wont write to me in English.


Since I told my mom I was learning Spanish, she has stopped writing me in English. This has left me with having to translate EVERYTHING. That's not a bad thing, I do have one question.

She ended her last letter with (if my memory serves me correctly) ''con mucho cariño. Does this mean ''with much love'' ? I deleted her letter already so I can't go back and look. Am I even remembering it right? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that it says "do your homework, stay off the phone, get to bed early, No girls, ...you know, Mom things.

With much love ...literally, but I'm sure that she meant the things above. If not, I could call her and ask, and also tell her what you've been up to, so Stop It.

You are correct. Con mucho carino means basically "with much love".
