It's World Week, and today Jasmine is the one getting interviewed! She's here to tell us about El Salvador, the country that her family comes from.

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Good morning. It's time for Chompers your morning and night toothbrushing show. It's World Week and we're talking to people from all over the world. Today we have a special interview with Jasmine. Normally Jasmine does the interview. But today I'm interviewing Jasmine. So. Start brushing on the top of your mouth. On one side.

3 2 1 brush!  

>> Rachel: So Jasmine you speak another language. What language do you speak? 

>> Jasmine: I speak both English and Spanish. 

>> Rachel: And why do you speak Spanish. 

>> Jasmine: I speak Spanish because my parents speak Spanish and that's because they're from a country called El Salvador. 

>> Rachel: And where is El Salvador. 

>> Jasmine: El Salvador is a tiny country that's in Central America. So Central America is the little strip of land between North America and South America. 

Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth.

>> Rachel: Have you ever been to El Salvador. 

>> Jasmine: Yeah I used to go there every summer with my family when I was a kid. So I've been there a bunch of times. 

>> Rachel: What was your favorite part about going to El Salvador. 

>> Jasmine: Well there's a special food that comes from El Salvador it's called pupusas and they are the most delicious. It's kind of like a quesadilla. But it's like stuffed on the inside if you can fill it with like beans and cheese or meat. They are delicious 

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth and brush your front teeth. 

>> Jasmine: So another cool thing about El Salvador is that we have active volcanoes. So when I was a kid we would go hiking up this volcano. And what nobody tells you is that everything smells like sulfur and sulfur smells like rotten eggs. It just smells like a mountain of farts as you're climbing up a volcano. 

Switch you're brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth. 

>> Jasmine: So if you were in El Salvador and you wanted to ask someone what does the volcano smell like you would say, como huele el volcan

>> Rachel: Como huele el volcan?

>> Jasmine: Yeah exactly And they would say it smells like Farts. 

>> Rachel: How would they say that?


>> Jasmine: Huele a pedo

>> Rachel: Huele a pedo. So the word for fart is pedo. This is the most important thing we're going to learn on Chompers today. The word for fart is pedo.


>> Jasmine: Yes. In Spanish the word for fart is Pedo.

Thats it for CHompers today, but come back tonight for more world week. Until then, 3, 2, 1 spit!
