'PRESUMIDO' IN ENGLISH-1: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Not long ago, one of our Daily Vitamin recipients, Pepa C., asked us how to clearly express the word "presumido" in English.

There are different words to express when someone is presumido. Perhaps the most common word is conceited.

The meaning of conceited: someone who is conceited behaves in a way that shows that they think they are very intelligent, skilful, or attractive. It is used to describe others negatively.

Example 1
She seems like a very nice person, but her boyfriend is extremely conceited; he thinks he's God's gift to women. I don't understand what she sees in him!

Another way of expressing "presumido" is by using the expression to be a show-off or to show off.

Example 2
It's very common for teenage boys to show off in front of their female friends. I remember when I was a boy; I was such a show-off.

I hope I don't sound too conceited if I tell that I can answer any question about today's Daily Vitamin that you would like to send me. So please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again to Pepa for her question.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
