HELPFUL HINTS – FALSE FRIENDS

spectacle

spectacle = an impressive, strange, or interesting sight; a beautiful, dramatic theatrical event

There’s nothing quite like the spectacle of a sunset at sea in the tropics.

The opening ceremony for the Olympics was an incredible spectacle.

N.B. spectacle – show, play, performance, etc.

* We saw a great spectacle on Broadway last week.
