Isn't it funny how can Spanish people turn something as simple as an egg as a unit of measurement? Yes! Believe it or not, when we attach the expression "un huevo" to the end of some expressions, we really want to say "a lot". "Cuesta un huevo"= It costs a lot. "Te quiero un huevo"= I love you so. "Me gusta un huevo"= I like it a lot. Now that we are at Easter time, nothing like an Egg expression ;)

- I am a secondary teacher of English in Southern Spain. I studied MFL in Jaén and I got a DPSI certificate in Law in England. I started my teaching career in Newcastle back in 2000, where I lived for 3 years. Once I returned home, I taught in a public school and got ready to sit the "oposiciones" exam, which I passed!!! Currently, I am teaching in Jaén, which has become my definite residence in Spain since 2004.
