I don't really consider myself as "New", but hey!

- Me llamo AaRon Walker, soy de los estados unidos. Espaol es mi idioma (second?). Yo quiero aprender espaol muy bien, amo espaol! I can't go any farther sadly, :( I learned Spanish for 3 years in school (What a waste of time, they taught us nothing for the first 2 1/2 *rolls eyes*). I very much want to continue learning and catch up on Spanish.
My current goal is to learn as much Spanish as I can in 5 months and then slow down, but still learn. I am very interested in this language.
Gracias por/para su tiempo.
:D

Hola a todos! :)

Yo soy Lorelai (aunque, al parecido, a mis padres les gust ms el nombre Anca Maria, pues ste es mi verdadero nombre :p), soy una chica rumana de 23 aos. Soy estudiante y trabajo en una empresa de informtica.

Aprendo espaol desde hace tres meses y me gusta ms cada da. :p S que un buen da voy a dominar el espaol pero, de momento, mi nivelo es entre elemental y intermedio. Tengo algunos problemas con el expresin escrito, pero, gracias a los maravillosos profesores de este foro, que han corregido mis errores por lo menos mil veces (gracias de nuevo, Goran, Javier y Pablo por aguantarme, por leerme, por contestarme :) ), ya me siento ms confortable expresarme en espaol.

Estudi espaol durante 3 aos en la escuela (qu prdida de tiempo, no nos ensearon nada durante las dos primeras mitades? *ojos en blanco*). Deseo en gran medida seguir aprendiendo y ponerme al da en espaol. Mi actual meta es aprender tanto espaol como pueda en 5 meses y luego reducir la marcha, pero seguir aprendiendo. Estoy muy interesado en este idioma.

Gracias por su tiempo.

I started learning Spanish at my local college around a month ago, and would like to have lessons or have the chance to talk to native Spanish speakers to help me improve my Spanish. I'm new to the site so I don't know my way around Phrasebase yet, but I'm sure I will soon, especially with the help of my fellow students (I hope!). Any help I'm given will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Hasta luego!

From Scratch: At 34 I may be a little long in the tooth to begin learning a second language, but I no longer wish to be the monolingual American. I have many Spanish speaking friends and I would like to impress them one day with my new Spanish skills, ok and maybe one chica in particular (Aren't all great efforts of Man made to impress a lady?). Seriously though I am committed to learning, I purchased a software and audio CD program online, I like the speech recognition feature but it seems many of the phrases it teaches have no use in everyday conversation. For example - "Do you have big feet?" - that one actually is pretty funny and I can't wait to use it on my friend - but I like the idea of hitting the ground running with more useful conversational phrases. I look forward to making friends on this site.

Chris.

Heh, that's about as far as I go. You would think with two years of high school Spanish that I could do more, but we go real slow in class. My Spanish is VERY limited, but I think y'all can help me out.

If there are any classes organised here at a beginners level, i will certainly participate...

We'll try to help you learn as much as we can. But the hard work can only be done by you. Learning is a personal thing. If you want to learn, you can learn a lot here, as some good natives are around. They always lend a hand.
Join us... and let's start! :)

Hola, legarcon y punk bunny, bienvenidos al foro.
As I said before, I cannot offer you to teach Spanish. We can help you with that, but not teach. Check the things we have here. It's not so difficult to join to some games or excercises. ASK ABOUT ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE A DOUBT (mmm... Spanish-related :D). For absolute beginners, start with pronunciation and some basic phrases. If you can record yourselves, send me a file, and I can check your pronunciation.

Bienvenidos, Specs and Tarver.
Yes, classroom is temporary down. They are doing some improvements to it. We'll have to wait in order to be able to use it again. We have no classes because nobody is interested.
PB seems a huge place at the begining. Just take some time to see how it is organized, and you'll realize that it's pretty simple.
Tarver, if you're new to Spanish, I'd sugest you to start with pronunciation. As I said before, this forum is for you to practice Spanish or to learn some things. Check it and tell us what's missing. The things we are trying to post are for you to use.

About accent marks... I think they are important. Many native speaker don't use them, that's true. Most of them is simply because don't know how to use them. As many native English speakers don't know how to use English (and English is only an example. You can name any language). Spanish rules include those accent marks. That's the way Spanish is. I'll try to use the best Spanish I can to help here. I fimly believe the accents help people learning the language. You easily recognize how to pronounce each word. It's MY suggestion. Take it or leave it. I'll always be over that point.
About how to get them in your computer, there's apost with instructions [url=http://www.phrasebase.com/discuss/read.php?TID=9620]here.
Why you have to say algunas? Because you are refering to plural a noun (canciones), the same as you need to use sus.

I have a question.... (Of course :D )
I am using a textbook from www.spanish-kit.net and they have the word "Mjico" in there. Is this "Mexico"? I have never ever seen it spelled like that, there are also so more differences that I see between the spanish in there than the spanish when I was taking it in school, but I will ask those questions as needed.
Is it really spelled like that? Maybe it's just a different word lol.


jvz8a
Wednesday 16th of November 2005 09:04:01 AM
It is not Mexico. It is Mxico. I didn't find it at the site of the Real Academia, but I know the spelling Mjico is accepted by them. But NO MEXICAN would ever dare to write it that way! NEVER!!!! For Mexicans, the word is Mxico.
When Spaniards came here, they tried to registerd the languages they heard. This place was named something like "meshico". At that time, the Spanish x had that sound value: like a sh, and that's why they used that letter to represent the sound. But as time went by, the sound value of it changed. The pronunciation in that specific word is like the j. To be honest, I don't like others to decide it can be spelt like that. For me it is Mxico. Use the form you like most, but please use the one with the x if you are writing to a Mexican. If not, they might see you as a not educated person.
Aaron... could you post these questions in the thread that was intended for it, please?

Nuevo y estupido: And that is about the extent of my knowledge of Spanish! I have been assigned to handle two of our global service providers - one in Costa Rica and the newest in Mexico City. We do most of our corresponding by email and FAX. My counterparts write exceptional in English but are always apologizing for their "bad English." But it is far and wide much better than my Spanish.

I am here to learn enough Spanish to correspond with them in their own language to gain a better understanding of their lives and culture and establish better rapport with them.

Any advice or direction would be appreciated.

Welcome, Sharon. :) From what you say, it seems you want to focus on writting Spanish and not on speaking it, am I right? But if you are starting with only nuevo and estpido (and I'd like to know why yhose too :D), you'll need to learn general vocabulary first (I'm thinking on categories like family, animals, etc.)

I think I said "nuevo" meaning "new" to this forum and I've always heard that "estupido" means "stupid or dumb" meaning that is my level of Spanish knowledge. Someone once told me that "bendeca" meant "stupid" but I have never found anyone to verify that.

Yes, reading and writing Spanish is what I am interested in more so than speaking it. To be honest, the few Spanish words and phrases I know come from living in Southern California for over 30 years and now in Oregon where I have worked with and associated with many people originally from Latin countries, mostly Mexico. I "speak" those phrases a lot but do not always know how to write or spell them.

I have started by reading your thread "Frases en Espaol" and have printed it out. This will help me get started and it is wonderful! Muchas Gracias!

Nice to know that thread helps in some way. If you have suggestions to add there, or to something else in the forum, please let me know.
bendeca? I haven't heard that word before... and the RAE nor my dictionaries have it. Maybe it's a slang.

technical stuff: This probably does not belong here, Javier, but perhaps you can pass it along.

This forum is way too slow. I am on a cable modem which usually "flies" and I run my own forum www.sealettercruiseforum.com. I think perhaps you are allowing too large of avatars, images and signatures in posts. The slowness today would drive me crazy on a regular basis and that could be why not as many people are posting and/or participating.

Also, I would prefer it if you would organize your threads / messages in the reverse with the newest post first so that one does not have to scroll through pages and pages of posts to get to the most recent.

Just a few suggestions which might help. Delete this if it is not appropriate.


jvz8a
Sunday 20th of November 2005 01:31:04 AM
I can only make changes in this forum, and those changes are about deleting/editing other's posts, locking/unlocking threads and things like those. You're right: there are some avatars and signatures that are too big.
The changes I can do are about the content in the forum, not the format [thank God I have no access to other kind of changes! :p]
For the threads, you can go directly to the last post, on the right-hand side. Are you talking about that?

its boring to learn by myself..: I had to choose one place on earth where to go for a while to live and i've chosen Spain. So i am looking for somebody to teach me Spanish as i am going in March already.. It is no fun to learn by myself. I know a bit basics, but the real thing is to communicate in spanish i guess - its the best way to learn a foreign language.

I never studied Spanish, but I know the basics, because in the last 6 years I was obliged to contact people in "portunhol" (a mix of Portuguese and Spanish). I would like to receive your aid to develop my Spanish. Desde Brasil, gracias por vuestra ayuda!

I know a lot of the greetings and understand many of the sentences i read, but due to the fact that i dont have anyone to practice with in everyday routine i find it difficult to engage in conversation as my brain doesnt automatically go into spanish gear when i go to talk ;) hehe

I am REALLY looking forward to taking part in this forum. I want to become fluent in Spanish as I have always wanted to learn another language but only know English.

My mother and grandmother {mi madre y mi abuela} spoke spanish fluently and my siblings and I never had the chance to speak fluently. My grandmother was born and raised in puerto rico so speaking spanish is my second language and I desire to learn more so that I may speak fluently. I learned basic spanish in high school in america and that was over 20 years ago! So, I'm rusty! I'm looking forward to learning spanish.

Introducing myself: Hi to everyone! I've had an account for quite a while, but I don't seem to be able to find time to get online...sheesh. I want to learn Spanish, Irish, and French, and I've been going crazy trying to decide which to concentrate on the most until I'm fluent. I finally decided Spanish, just because I would get the most use of it here. No tengo muchos amigos que hablan "Irish"...que es Irish en espanol? Oh, yes, and I don't have the keyboard options for all the accents, so forgive the "naked" 'n's that you will come across when I attempt to escribar en espanol. See, there's one now.....
Anyway, I guess I'd like to find a pen-pal in Spain, omigish that would be the coolest thing I could imagine, that I could write letters to. I do a lot of actual writing. Like, on paper, you know? Archaic, yes.
Info? Married, one adorable little girl that I'm teaching Spanish to, who also wants to learn French and Irish (go figure), and she's only five years old. Kids these days....

Hola everyone.

I would really like to learn Spanish- I live in Houston, Texas, and knowing Spanish is really useful around here.

At this moment I only know clips and phrases in Spanish... mostly what I call 'kitchen Spanish'; names of foods. Huevos, espinaca, etc. It comes from working in kitchens in restaurants and communicating with mostly people who only speak Spanish or speak limited English.

Anyway, I'm hoping I can learn a lot here.

Ok I might sound stupid for saying this but I'll say it anyway:

I am interested in Learning Spanish. When I first started reading this (I was registered in PB with the other account that vanished: Pazuzu) I liked Spanish, it sounded very easy, I undertood alot of it already counting on my french. So when compared to learning german it seems much more relaxing and fun. The problem's that when I already know the main subject of a text in spanish, I don't really concentrate on the details, you know the small word here and there. So when comparing reading a spanish text and reading a german one I realise that I am learning much more about the sentence structure when reading in german, while in spanish I often don't learn anything. As a result I can't even make a simple sentence in spanish :(.

I don't see how anyone can help me out with this problem, but if anyone has any ideas I'm all ears!

I just found this site through helping someone figure out how to learn Uighur of all things, and it seems interesting and I thought it might be useful to help me practise and improve my Spanish and indulge my inner language geek.

At the moment my biggest problems are getting verbs right, and figuring out how to use the various pronouns properly. Oh, and the usual things, por y para, los usos del subjunctivo...

Spanish Question: Hola! Me llamo es Elizabeth. Quiero aprendar espanol. Soy un estudiante en la escuela de 'business' en los Estados Unidos.

That's as much as I am going to attempt with my basic knowledge. I am using Barron's to try and teach myself Spanish, because I am in an international business program and would like to do an internship in Spain.

Here's my question:

Ser (to be) and Estar(to be)??? I understand sentences such as "Soy de South Carolina" or "Estoy bein" etc. BUT, Why do you say "El Hotel esta en el centro?" I thought estar was conditional??? I would think the correct way would be "El Hotel es en el Centro"

Gracias!

[color=blue]-Me llamo es Elizabeth / Mi nombre es Elizabeth
-soy una estudiante en la escuela de econmicas I would say: "estudio econmicas"
-soy de Carolina del Sur. Estoy bien.
-El hotel est en el centro

"Estar" and "ser" are different verbs and "estar" is not the conditional tense of any verb, it is a verb itself. It is hard to explain but to have a rough idea, "ser" expresses states that last for long, and "estar" speaks about things that do not last much. You'll get a better idea at a grammar book and taking a look around the forum. :D[/color]

Me llamo Amanda y estoy tratando a estudiar espanol. Estoy estudiando a ser maestra de la escuela primaria, y por eso tome muchas clases espanolas en los anos pasados. Pero...ahora me estoy olvidando de la lengua porque no uso lo y no estoy en clases espanoles.

Ouch! Okay, apologies for the bad grammar. I haven't taken Spanish or had to use the language much for almost two years and I'm worried that if I don't use it I'll lose it. I think the language is beautiful and I'd love to be much much more fluent. Any help would be great. :-D Cheers!

I'd like to learn Spanish and I have been starting from a book. I already have a dictionary (Spanish - Dutch/Dutch - Spanish). I just need to learn Spanish by using it and search for what to say. eh ... I hope you understand what I mean?

Why Spanish? It is much used, spoken in an interested part of the world and sounds very nice! :)

hola amigos: Hello there my name is Sarah I can speak a little bit of Spanish but not too much. But I think that is mostly due to the fact I have not practiced in quite a while. I would really like to find a nice safe and positive place to learn..lol I have been to a lot of internet sites like this where people will try biting your head off at one word not spelled right or used correctly. And trust me you will not win any popularity points with me by acting this way...you have to understand when people are beginners we are not going to get everything right.
lol with that said I hope this place is a little different from other places I have been and I can find some good friends on here to help me learn more and possibly some tutors that can help me brush up my spanish skills.

Hola, Sarah.
I can only speak for myself here.
I correct here as I'd like to be corrected in other fora. You can see how I do it in this forum. Maybe you dislike it. If that's the case, let me know and I won't do anything regarding your posts.
The same goes for the others.

I know beginners don't get everything right. I am a beginner in almost everything. But that doesn't mean I want to keep on doing the mistakes I do as a beginner. I prefer to be corrected. But some don't. If I don't know it, I'll do it as if it were me who is going to be corrected.

The verb to be in Spanish means both ser and estar, that's why you mix them. You're doing great, though!

OK, ok, I know my Spanish is horrible, and I don't know how to add the accents, since they aren't available on my keyboard. But, then, that's why I'm here, isn't it? :)

¡Hola a todos!

Soy nuevo en esta comunidad y sólo quería saludar a toda la gente en este foro y presentarme a vosotros para que me conozcáis. Me llamo Andreas, tengo 21 años y soy de Suecia (no ser confundido con Suiza). Soy estudiante del primer año de medicina y quisiera estudiar en el extranjero, especialmente en España, para terminar la carrera. Estudio español desde hace casi dos años y aún no tenía problemas con él, afortunadamente. Para mí, el español es bastante fácil aunque hay muchas cosas gramaticales que no existen en mi lengua materna, p.ej. el subjuntivo. Me extraño saber quién fue el malvado que inventó el subjuntivo. Bueno, espero mejorar mi español y aprender algo nuevo con vuestra ayuda.

Saludos,
Andreas

(Todas las correcciones son bienvenidas)

lol :D

Lo único que suena "raro" es la parte de Me extraño saber quién fue el malvado que inventó el subjuntivo.
¿Tal vez quedaría mejor decir simplemente quisiera saber quién fue...?
TODO lo demás está muy bien.

¡Bienvenido!

mmm... what do you mean? Do you need help to understand the reply you got?
It says:
Well... I don't know. I like Spain, its language, its culture, its history... I think there aren't many here who speak Spanish.

If I miss what you were asking for, please be a little more specific.

My own Spanish: No, I understood the reply. I meant I need help with my own use of the language! I understand much, much more than I can speak! So, what I needed help with was what I typed - corrections on my own stuff. So others could understand me.
I don't have a Spanish keyboard, by the way - I can't add accents or any other grammatical symbols used in Spanish, SO if I ask a question, for instance, I know about the "upside-down" question mark at the beginning of the question, but I don't have a way to do that. Is there some trick someone can teach me on getting these symbols?

AHHHH! That totally changes what I understood!! :D

Okay, okay.

First, you can get all special characters of Spanish language from this site: [url=http://www.lexilogos.com/clavier/espanol.htm]http://www.lexilogos.com/clavier/espanol.htm

I'd say it this way:
Hay muchas personas aquí en la "web" que hablan español. No digo "hablamos" porque yo todavía NO hablo español, ¡pero quiero aprender!
As you see, the corrections are not so many and not so important. What you wrote was perfectly understanable.

Notes on what I changed:
1. I've always heard "la web" (feminine). I guess it has to do with the fact that the way I've heard it is "la red".
2. If you see, I changed the place of "yo". You don't need it, but if you add it, it is in order to emphasize it. I feel that "todavía" must go next to what it refers to... and it doesn't refers to "yo", but with "no hablo".
3. lol the verb is "aprender" and it is very similar to what you wrote.

All in all, your text was not bad for someone who claims not to speak Spanish :)

Ahora voy intentar a escribir en español aqui...

Vivo en los EE.UU y quiero aprender otra vez mi español por que lo hablé mucho antes de vivir en Francia para apprender el francés. Hablo francés pero no español y hay muchos latinos aquí en mi ciudad pero no hablo con ellos por que tengo miedo que no hablo bien..

Comprendo mucho quando escucho una conversacíon...tengo amigos quíen hablen solámente español pero es dificil para mi para hablar con ellos. ¿Comprenden lo que escribí?

Well I always understood a bit of Spanish when I read it, because of how close it is to French. I had the chance to learn Spanish but chose to learn German (because it's harder for me). That was before I entered the working force and since I might be more included in international cooperation and stuff, Spanish gained more importance for my career. So I thought I'd give it a try.
So to avoid embarrassing myself, I will have to focus first of all on the grammar and basic sentences (alone) before participating in the games and ongoing threads (which are crucial to get a vocabulary).
And that's it

Hola,

Me llamo Jovana. Vivo en Serbia. Me encanta la lengua española y su cultura. Me gustaría vivir en España. En el año pasado, yo iba en un curso de español(nivel inicial). Ahora quiero practicar y perfeccionar español. Comprendo mucho, casi todo, quando escucho, pero no tengo muy oportunidad para hablar y usar español.
