Beer or coffee?
On a recent holiday to Andalusia where they are no English speakers I ordered a beer in two different bar and in both cases I received very strong black coffee. Of course I said gracias even though the temperature was approximately 40 degrees and far too hot for coffee. My mistake: I pronounced cerveza like 'car-veh-sah' which does sound a bit like café. Now I know that the letter 'c' is more pronounced like 'th' - 'thair-veh-sah'.
