Re: Spanish

Para leer libros en español, probad aquí:http://www.cervantesvirtual.com/.
Si buscáis clásicos, ahí encontraréis casi todo lo que queráis.

Si preferís algo más actual: www.capitanaltriste.com
Es la página de un escritor y columnista español que personalmente me gusta mucho. Puede ser un poco difícil de entender a veces, pero también muy divertido Encontraréis sus artículos pinchando en "Patente de corso" y datos sobre sus libros.

For books in Spanish, try here:http://www.cervantesvirtual.com/.
If you're looking for classics, there you'll find all you want.

If you prefer something more up-to-date:www.capitanaltriste.com
It's the site of a Spanish writer and columnist that I personally like very much. He's a bit hard to understand sometimes, but also very funny. You'll find his articles clicking on "Patente de corso"

En realidad la palabra para la palabra "parabla" es "palabra."

También la conjugación de saber para la forma de "yo" es "sé."

Me olvido traduce a "I forget." La Patente de corso era un viejo documento histórico que permitió su proprietario a atacar naciones enemigas.

If you look, YPB said that you have written "parabla" instead of "palabra." You have written the word incorrectly.

The idea of "se me olvidó" instead of "yo olvido" or "yo olvidé" is that it implies that the fault belongs to the object and that you have no fault in forgetting the object. For example, "Se me olvidó el cuaderno" translates to "The notebook was forgotten to me."

Hope that helps!

Re: Spanish

You said "parabla." The word for word is not parabla, but is palabra. The r and the l are switched.

No conozco la traducción exacta de Patente de Corso, pero era el documento por el cual corsarios eran autorizados por sus gobiernos para atacar cualquier barco de una nación enemiga (algo así como piratería legal).

En la página que os decía es una especie de broma: ese escritor publicó un libro recopilando sus artículos y el título fue precisamente Patente de Corso (le encantan las novelas de piratas y barcos, y además la mayoría de sus artículos son críticos o satíricos).

I don't know the exact translation of Patente de Corso, but it was the document through which corsairs were authorized by their governments to attack any ship belonging to an enemy nation (something like legal piracy).

In the site I told you, it's a kind of joke: that writer published a book compiling many of his articles and the title was precisely Patente de Corso (he's a bloke that loves pirates and ship novels, and, besides, most of his articles are critical or satirical)

Re: Spanish

Acabo de recordar: esta página es muy buena por ayudar a los estudiantes. Vayan a la sección "Grammar" y lea una lección o tome una prueba. Es facil entender y hay muchas páginas.

I just remembered: this page is very good for helping students. Go to the section "Grammar" and read a lesson or take a quiz. It's easy to understand and there are many pages.

Hola! Spanish is my first language, so I can help too.

Deathly, it will go like: 'ESTE es mi SEGUNDO AÑO estudiando español".

Also, about the "se me olvidó" ... it means "I forgot".

Espero haberte ayudado. (I hope I helped.)

Re: Spanish

Hola!

I'm in 8th grade, so I've been taking Spanish for...6 years. Next year when we get to high school, pretty much everyone I know wants to learn a different language. But, wouldn't it be easier to just take the language you've been learning for 6 years, instead of trying to learn a whole new one? I think I'm the only one in my school that thinks that. My sister took French and high school, but the class was too hard for her when she got to college, so she switched back to spanish.

(I'm not a good speller when I don't have the vocab sheet next to me)

Me llamo Laurie. Me gusta leer, dibujar, ver una pelicula, y usar la computadora. Yo soy artistica, perezzosa (I know I spelled that wrong) a veces, amable, joven, y alta.

Yeah, and I would attempt my hair and eyes, but we just got that vocab sheet today, and we're not done going over it yet. I think it's "tengo pelo rubio obscuro" but I'm not sure.

¡Hola! Bienvenido. Pienso que "me gusta leer, etc." should be "me gustan" because your subject (in this case, the things you like to do) is plural. Pero necesitamos preguntar a otra persona si es verdad.

I assume "rubio obscuro" means dirty/dark blonde? No sé. ¿Qué color son tus ojos? ¿Marrones, azules, verdes? Mis ojos son marrones y verdes...Son muy verdes a veces, y a veces son marrones.

¿Cómo se dice "hazel" en español?

"Hazel" es avellano[a].

Y si, es me gustan, no "gusta."

Está bien. Me gusta practicar mi español; tú no debes practicar también.

Y sí, aprendemos, y a veces nuestros profesores no nos dicen todos. Está bien. Me gusta el frase "está bien" ....puedes ver? I'm not sure that "can you tell?" would directly translate here. Ah well.

Mis ojos son avellanos.

This doesn't really make sense. "Tu no debes practicar tambien" means, "You should not practice also. Am I incorrect in my translations, or am I not getting your meaning?

This is really funny. My first language is spanish and I had to think and look for what is "hazel" in spanish In Puerto Rico, we normally say "hazel" and lea. Really bad from our part. But yeah, the correct translation is "avellanos".

First, it is "la" frase (not "el" frase)
About "puedes ver"? ---> If you want to say "Can you tell?" that could do the trick. You can also say "te fijas?" o "te das cuenta?" o "te diste cuenta?". The direct translation DOES sound a bit weird, But I got what you meant, so that's good!

En realidad es "Tu lo debes practicar tambien", que significa "You must practice also"...

You are correct, but that wasn't (I think) what Aramina wants to say.

By the way, I'm from Spain
