Translation:We have to write on the chalkboard.
English speaking folks: "chalkboard = blackboard" , in English But of course, then the lesson " La pizarra es negra" looses something...?
Yes, pizarra can be a chalkboard, blackboard, or whiteboard. Here in the US, some of our chalkboard are green.
Good to know that pizarra can mean whiteboard as well, since chalkboards are going the way of the dinosaur. My son's Kindergarten class (5 years ago!) was already using a computerized "smart board".
"La pizarra es negra" means this is a sentence from an older time... or from an old-fashioned place.
First time i heard of a chalkboard :). Btw here they are dark green
