Spanish games 1 - Sopa de letras: This thread is intended for beginers only. [Let them play! :p]
[And just to make things clear: if you have more than ONE (1) star in your profile, you are not a beginer and this game will be extremely easy for you. So let others play, please]
We'll start with colors. Find eleven names of colors

Yo sé solamente siete colores en espa[color=red]ñ[/color]ol (sorry for the accents!)*sigh* I guess you didn't read [url=http://www.phrasebase.com/discuss/read.php?TID=9620]this thread, as I guess most people who has been in this forum.
EDIT: Your sentence sounds as "I didn't find anything there, but I know seven colors, which are..." To prove me wrong... (yes, I shouldn't trust people that easy), can you tell me their possitions?
azul= blue (or is it light blue?)Azul = blue.
To indicate light or dark, you need, as in English, another word: claro and oscuro, respectively.
n[color=red]e[/color]gro= black
morado, (no moreno?) = brownThis is an unfortunate guess:
morado = purple!!!
gris[color=red]e[/color] = grey
I can't find the other four! Sorry!They are there. Somebody?
I got 3 stars but I'm a beginner in Spanish!hmmm.. that sounds as if somebody gave them to you. Why do you need so many stars?

I have three stars coz I partecipate to other forums too, ita, french, german in particular but i haven't posted a lot in the Spanish one...Well... I've participated also in other fora... (*thinks:... miscellaneous, introductions, chatroom lessons, support request, all languages, document translations, language teachers, all countries... ... ...*) Yeah... I knew I deserved the profile I have now :D :p

*sigh* By the way... as you are the only beginer here, this is your game. If you need hints about this one, ask. I'll post the next sopa de letras when this one is complete. If you get bored looking for the colors, also tell me and I'll post the rest, so we can move to a new quiz.
If somebody wants to give it a try (which doesn't seem probable), go ahead. Maybe I should say: "forget what I said about not playing this game and letting them play. If you want, lore, anette goran or pablo, do."

I know that I posted the answers, but they must be floating around in cyberspace... here goes, again...

I'm glad that I can play, because it was killing me not too. I've loved this type of game since I was a kid...

column/row
verde, green, 1/1
rojo, red 2/2
morado, purple 3/6
negro, black 10,3
gris, grey 7,1
blanco, white 4,1
anaranjado, orange 1,7: even though I've only known this as naranja... is one the color and the other the fruit?
amarillo, yello 2/8
rosa/rosado, pink 1/3
café, brown 4/5
azul, blue 9/1

How do I insert a small picture here in the body of text. I had printed out the game, scanned it and tried to insert it, but forgot how... thanks! :D

anaranjado, orange 1,7: even though I've only known this as naranja... is one the color and the other the fruit?Naranja is the fruit and anaranjado is the color... the same os for rosa and rosado, but you can use both to mean the color.
How do I insert a small picture here in the body of text. I had printed out the game, scanned it and tried to insert it, but forgot how...Only enclose the address where your image is hosted between "[ i m g ]" and "[ / i m g ]" (without the spaces).

Sorry if the new one is too basic... just that I thought some beginers could join.
The next one:
[img]http://www.geocities.com/ekauranium/PBsemana.jpg[/img]
Find the days of the week. To make it more challenging... find 10! :p [there are only seven, of course.]

[Why did I think I needed to clear that?? :p:D]

Friday 18th of November 2005 05:13:55 PM
Thanks jvz!!

café is a color? i didn't know it =o/...
Ok, here we go for the days:

sabado = 7th row (obviously I had written 1st row before...)
miercoles= 4th row
jueves= 8th row
domingo= last row
lunes= towards the end of the 1st column
viernes= towards the endo f the 2nd colunm
martes= 4th column

To me these games are nic =o) but since they are too easy for the others you should post other, more difficult ones, i think i'll just imporove faster =o) pushing it up to the limit will just be good to me ;o)

ps: I found two others too but they are a bit different from the ones I know:

Jueve: 8th column
Sabato =1st row (just like in Italian =o)

soles, in the 6th row, towards the end, is it another way to say domingo? =o)

soles, in the 6th row, towards the end, is it another way to say domingo?Those extra two are incorrect. They were there only to make confusion. The first one lacks the last letter, while the second one has a wron letter. About soles, it is the plural of sol, which means sun. The only names for the days are the seven you found.

Jeje, I like to think of myself this way. :p I just meant that there are more people who could tell you what birt...ahhm why May. ;) :p

Really, from now on, if you set a rule at the beginining of a game, make sure it is adhered to throughout. :D

Sunday 20th of November 2005 04:44:37 AM

jvz8a
Wednesday 23rd of November 2005 06:49:17 AM
To make comparissions:
1) more... [adjective]... (than...)= más... [adjectivo]... (que...)
easier = más fácil
smaller = más pequeño
2) less... [adjective].. (than) = menos...[adjetivo]...(que...)
less compicated = menos complicado.

Sure! Now find the numbers.

"izquierda" means "left" as the direction, right? I want to say "left" like in the sentence: "There are only two eggs left in the basket as I sold most of them." Should I use "izquierda" for this meaning or is there another word for that? Hay muchas palabras para aprender:)
