The presentation has errors and switches mid sentence between Spanish and English. Although the content is well planned and designed, the Powerpoint needs to be improved.

While the Spanish information is very useful, I found several errors that I needed to correct before I could share it with my classes.

Velasquez instead of Velazquéz Hizó instead of hizo, unos conexiónes instead of unas conexiones

I wish there would have been more details about who is who in the Las Meninas painting.
