comment Names of letters “b” and “v”
Tee hee: pronounce BBVA and BBUBA out loud using uve. Good on the RAE for clearing up the ambiguity!

comment How important are accents in written Spanish?
For people fluent in Spanish, it's probably true that unaccented text isn't much harder to read. However, when I read unaccented text as a beginner, I'd often have to make a second pass over a phrase in order to resolve ambiguities.

comment Can I learn to roll my R's?
It's only true that a single r is like a t in some dialects of English. You wouldn't be doing a Strayan or a Cockney any favors by telling them that.

revised “Ser” and “Estar”: Spanish vs. Portuguese
It sounded like estar was used mainly for location, which isn't true. It's used for all sorts of other things too.
