A few questions for you Spanish speaking or Spanish teacher types out there:
1. What are good Spanish equivalents for "locker" and "term"- as in an academic term- half a semester?
2. Which do you prefer for "cheerleader"- porrista or animadora?
3. Is it ok to use the preterite to say "it rained" (llovió)? Our book states that the imperfect is used with weather conditions (it was sunny, it was cloudy, etc..), which I understand. But with rain and snow? Those seem like an event that has a clear beginning and end.
Just when I think I know this stuff...
