How Do YOU Say ‘Pear’?

As a foreign language student in my school days (Spanish and French), I enjoy any opportunity to pick up new words in any language. It’s helpful for travel, communication, and has even taught me more about my own native English than I learned in any language arts class growing up.

So here are a few words to add to a more international vocabulary – the pear-fect building blocks for discussing our favorite topic: pears!

About Lynsey

I work with USA Pear marketing offices that work in 38 countries all over the world: from Latin America to the Middle East, from Europe to Southeast Asia and places in between, our representatives serve markets on every continent except Antarctica. I love the opportunity to practice my Spanish and pick up new phrases in other languages (even if it’s just the basics of “hello,” “goodbye,” “thank you” and of course “pear”: pera, birne, гру́ша [GROO-sha], and more to come). I’ll be sharing highlights of the exciting and interesting activities that are taking place to promote USA Pears around the world. My favorite pear variety is Comice. Yum!
