False friends
Hi guys
I �m doing some research in Spanish about "false cognates or false friends" in English-Spanish languages. I  have a long list of false cognates.
 I wonder if you could help me with some theory, teaching resources or activities of how to teach false cognates.
Thanks in advance,

There are another 3 of them, too. Hope they help in some way.
