Ok guys… inspired by ellipse and dunamis who were trying to speak spanish… I am opening up this topic. Ill add lessons from tiem to time but be free to ask for translations or questions about the spanish language, culture, food, anything. This is for all u other language speakers who want to learn anything spanish related. Feel free to ask! God Bless!January 26, 2009 at 3:08 am #27174
Ok first lesson is the continuation of the one given in no habla topic of ellipse. Here it is:
So yeah…u have to … I think its called conjugate… the verbs in spanish depending on who is speaking, who u speaking of or who u spaking too.
Verb: Hablar – to talk
Yo hablo… I talk
Tu(or vos) hablas… you talk
Usted habla… you talk
El habla… he talks
Nosotros(or vosotros) hablamos… we talk
Ustedes hablan… you guys talk
Tu or vos(argentinian use this)-you also “usted” is used as respect instead of “tu”… usually used to older people or bosses and such
El-he or Ella-she
Nosotros(guys) or Nosotras(girls)-we
Ustedes(is the same as before but u use it as a respect) – you guys… not exactly well translated but u get the idea
Hablo, hablas, habla, hablamos, hablan… are all derived from the verb Hablar which is to talk
As you can see the verb changes depending on the situation… on the sentence or frase. So if u learn that u have one step in front of many beginners.
Another example is:
Discjokear(not exactly a verb… its actually a “anglocismo”) which is a English word turned into a spnish word… we actually do this a lot) – to DJ
Yo discjokeo… I DJ
Tu(or vos) discjoikeas… you DJ
El discjokea… he DJs
Usted discjokea… you DJ
Nosotros(or vosotros) discjokeamos… we DJ
Ustedes diskjokean… you guys DJ
Get the hang of it? or need more practice? More examples? Have questions… ask freely!January 27, 2009 at 11:58 pm #27175
yeah, post more.
also in spanish, you put the adjective behind the noun, instead of in front like english right?January 28, 2009 at 3:36 am #27173

reb bag would be bulto rojo
awesome dj=dj maravilloso

i have a useful term and translation: salado queso de gato = salty cat cheese
actually in spanish it would be queso salado de gato because of what I just explained and Dunamis mentioned asked.
Salado=salty (which is the adjective comes first in english but second in spanish)
Enjoy! and God Bless!
Any other questions?
I thought of posting translations but I guess u guys can look that up on the internet so for now these rules are a good start. If u guys want translations just post them up and I’ll give it my best. Soon more lessons!February 11, 2009 at 6:25 am #27180
how do you say usted? is it like you-sted or us-ted?February 11, 2009 at 6:28 am #27181
could you maybe do like pronunciation things like the dictionary has?February 11, 2009 at 2:25 pm #27182
Here is a lesson on “usted” from http://www.spanishdict.com/translate/usted
1. you (tratamiento de respeto)(plural) ustedes -> you
contesten ustedes a las preguntas -> please answer the questions
de usted/ustedes -> yours
me gustaría hablar con usted -> I’d like to talk to you
hablar o tratar de usted a alguien -> = to address somebody as “usted”, i.e. formally
Copyright © 2006 Chambers Harrap Publishers Limited
1. You (your worship, your honor), a contraction of vuestra merced (vuesarced, usted), a pronoun used in polite style to address all persons of respectability, either orally or by letter. (m)Uste -> and ustedes used to be written in abbreviation, thus: Vm
El coche de usted -> your car
Sin usted -> without you
, Vms., Vmd., Vmds. At present usted is represented by Ud. or Vd., and ustedes (pl.) by Vds., and often printed in full. The loose articulating of the d frequently causes it to become inaudible, particularly in Spanish America; so that usted sounds as usté.

could you maybe do like pronunciation things like the dictionary has?
I found some good pronounciation lessons in a couple of sites:
http://www.spanishdict.com/ -> here u can translate any word from english to spanish and vice versa and it usually gives u how to pronounce it
http://www.gamequarium.com/pronunciation.html -> here is like a game site to learn how to pronounce spanish correctly
http://www.studyspanish.com/default.htm -> here is a good site for pronounciation, grammar, vocabulary, and even verb skills. Most is free
http://www.123teachme.com/ -> i beleive this site is all free and even has some info on how to save lives while learning spanish
I’ll be posting some lessons from these sites from time to time cuz they seem to be good resources. Also questions are welcome. Que Dios los bendiga! (translation -> God Bless!)
