Spanish English cognates

We have lots of nationalities and languages in the classroom, but those from latin language groups can gain a wide vocabulary just by being aware of their cognates in English, and how their suffixes change to English ones.  Most people aren't even aware of their own languages, and this gives them a quick vocabulary enrichment boost!
