Foro is a word I learned from Internet surfing. It means a forum. This can be an online forum, or it can be a round table discussion group. It can also be where you make your position known in a court room. All of these are a place for your voice to be heard.

Strangely, there is another use of the word which means backstage in a theater. Backstage meaning behind the scenery where no one should hear your voice. ‘Hacer mutis por el foro’ is an idiomatic expression which means to keep quiet. Mutis means to be sent off stage.
