  1. Tan cierto! No he escuchado ninguna canción de Juanes recientemente. ¿Canta todavía? Pablo Alborán - Me encanta realmente una de sus canciones llamada Perdóname. Canta con Carminho. Es muy hermoso!
  2. Me gusta Juanes también. Pero me gusta mucho bailar y escuchar Bachata. Hay algo realmente hermoso y emocional sobre ese tipo de música. Los artistas de Bachata que me gustan: Elvis Martinez, Romeo Santos y Prince Royce. ¿Alguno de ustedes escuchar Bachata?
  3. Es difícil de traducir los platos tradicionales en otros langauges. Creo que es por eso que muchas veces los nombres son los mismos. Pero creo que la traducción para stuffing es "relleno". ¿Alguien aquí sabe?
  4. Gracias por las correcciones. Tienes razón, sólo podemos aprender de las correcciones. Espero que no confundo a nadie. Yo sólo quiero que la gente se sienta cómoda para escribir aquí. Una vez más, gracias. Tengo mucho que aprender sobre el español.
  5. Gracias a todos por sus respuestas. Me encanta leer todas sus respuestas. Estoy de acuerdo con muchos de ustedes. Me gustaría vivir en España y en Portugal. Pero la economía no es buena en todo el mundo. Los empleos son difíciles de obtener. Por lo tanto, tengo que permanecer en los EE.UU.. Pero un día, pronto, espero viajar y vivir en el extranjero.
  6. Thanks BWL!!! When I was taking French classes in school, my teacher used to have us student play-act restaurant scenes. It used to be fun. And at the end of the semester or food lesson, we would bring in french foods and play-act some more while eating. That was the best part.
  7. Dime algo sobre ti... Yo soy una chica de Florida. Me gusta leer, viajar, comer, bailar y ver buenas películas. Me encanta aprender cosas nuevas y disfrutar la vida. Soy artística, entonces me encanta todas las cosas "artsy" - moda, pinturas, música, literatura, decoración de interiores...
  8. ¿Qué platos Españoles y/o Latino te gusta? De España, me gusta paella, gazpacho, y empanada. De América Latina, me gusta tostones, maduros, arroz con frijoles, arroz con pollo, arroz con mariscos, yuca frita, y ceviche. Un plato que voy a recordar siempre es la bandeja paisa de Colombia. Oowee, que grande!!!
  9. ¿Qué comida te comes en Navidad? En mi familia, las fiestas de Navidad duran todo el día. Y hay un montón de comida para comer durante todo el día. Yo como el pollo, pavo, jamón al horno, patatas, tostones, maduros, pan, ensalada, pasta con queso, y otros favoritos. ¿Y tu? Por favor, no te preocupes por los errores. Esto es solamente algo divertido y delicioso que todos podemos hablar en español.
  10. ¿Quieres vivir en España? ¿En qué ciudad vivirías? ¿Por cuánto tiempo quieres vivir en España? ¿Por qué quieres vivir en España? Por favor, no te preocupes por los errores. Esto es solamente algo divertido que todos podemos hablar en español.
  11. ¿Qué tipo de películas te ves? Yo veo mucho romance, ciencia ficción, espiritual, y las películas de acción. Mis películas favoritas son las comedias románticas. ¿Y tu?
  12. I think this is a very useful way to learn Spanish. As for errors, don't worry about it. You're still in the learning stage. If you want, you can take some Spanish classes so that you can learn basic grammar rules. But there's no need to perfect your Spanish right now. As for me, I love translating ads. They are short, they have pictures, and it's just plain fun.
  13. I actually looked into teaching Spanish in Spain. I even started browsing expat sties for Spain. But I couldn't find any legit jobs. It doesn't help that Spain has been going through their own depression. I've been waiting for the economy to get better. But that doesn't seem to be happening.
  14. I actually don't have any plans. Funny enough, I've never asked myself that question. I'm learning because I do a lot of things Latin or Spanish and it's a useful language to know in Florida.
  15. Yes. I've tried it before. We either met at a Latin / Spanish restaurant or someone's house. It's actually a lot of fun. But it can become expensive if you are tight with money and the group members are particular with where they eat and what they eat. Anyway, I totally recommend it.
  16. Definitely. It is especially important if you live in Florida. Many of the jobs here now require someone who speaks both Spanish and English fluently. It can be very frustrating. The other thing is in cities with a lot of Spanish-speaking people like Miami, you can go to a store and not be able to get service because the workers don't speak English.
  17. I don't know of any specific sites. But I'm sure if you google it, you'll come across something. I know I did a few months ago. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name. You can also try YouTube for some quick video courses. It's always good to hear words pronounced the way a teacher would do it for you in class. And don't forget to pick up some French music with lyrics written out in French. That is an easy and fun way to re-familiarize yourself with French.
  18. Bonjour! Je suis des États-Unis. J'ai étudié le français à l'université. Mais je n'ai pas pratiqué depuis des années. Donc, je suis ici pour recommencer. Si vous voyez des problèmes, s'il vous plaît corrigez-moi. Merci.
  19. I've heard a few throughout the years. That was the great thing about living where I lived. There was a ton of French and Spanish spoken. So, some of my favorite ones... 1. La raison du plus fort est toujours la meilleure. (Might is right.) 2. Il faut manger pour vivre, et non pas vivre pour manger. (Eat to live, don't live to eat) 3. Tous pour un, un pour tous. (All for one, one for all.)
  20. Since my first language is English, I think any language with a foreign script is hard. The first time I tried to learn modern Greek at a Greek church, I quit after 2 weeks. It was literally "all greek to me". I couldn't get it. Fast forward a few years... I signed up for an Ancient Greek class in college. To my surprise, I finished the class with good grades and a smile. I had a ton of fun working my brain in that manner.
  21. Standards for any type of teacher should be high, especially for a foreign language teacher. Unfortunately, not every teacher wants to teach. And the system doesn't help when they pay these teachers such low salaries. I think many of the younger teachers are having a hard time with this and are now asking themselves, is it worth it.
  22. Here's an easy game for learning how to order food in French. Directions: 1. Write a French restaurant's name (fake or real) and whether you are there for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or snack. 2. Write everything you would order from drinks to desserts. Write in the way you would order it in real life. For more practice, look up a real French menu and pretend you are ordering from there. Don't forget to be creative and have fun. Here's an example... Le dîner à Le Petit Paris Pour le hors d'oeuvres, je voudrais le Saumon Fume. Je voudrais votre soupe de jour; et pour la salade: Co
  23. Here's an easy French word game we can all play in order to practice our vocabulary... What to do: Give a word or word combo that starts with the last letter of the previous posters word. The first letter of the word you give must match the last letter of the word given by the previous poster. Here's an example... 1st poster: aimer (to love) 2nd poster: raison d'etre (reason for existing or living) 3rd poster: épreuve (test, ordeal, hardship) 4th poster: eau (water) Don't forget to add the definition of your word. If you want to practice your vocabulary more, you can respond to your own wo
  24. Omg, that's seriously the best tip. I just tried the gargle suggestion and then used it with your isolation suggestion... What a difference. If there was a "like" button on here, I'd press it a million times. I can't believe with all the French language classes I've been to, this is the first time I'm hearing this trick. Seriously, thank you!!!
  25. Here are a couple more negation possibilities... 1. "Ne ... jamais" basically means never Ex. Je ne travaille jamais ce jour = I never work this day. 2. "Ne ... plus" basically means no more and not anymore Ex. Je ne travaille plus ce jour = I do not work this day any more or I no longer work this day. Please correct me if I made any mistakes. I'm still learning myself.
