Prefer a salsa or a waltz or a quickstep or even LA rueda.
Did I mention it was "LA" Rueda???

Hmmmm - Quickstep.... I can be good at that....

ESPECIALLY when Isee that doggie next door!

Yes I think we got the gist is was LA.... PMSL!!

We dont say 'la' - we translate it to 'the'.
The french call 'the weekend' - 'le weekend' do we post that they are wrong and it should be the 'the weekend' no - we let it go!
PS I'm going 'The Angeles' in California for my holidays next year.

so we should be translating all of it - ie THE WHEEL!
you cant pick and choose the words you want to translate!

The words 'the/la/le' etc are translated as they indicate a definite article used before a noun/name and they are language specific - names/nouns usually remain untranslated.
To quote a French example again, 'le quick step' - two english words quick and step but with the french le. "The Quick Step" = English. "Le Quick Step" = French. Makes perfect sense.
