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!

    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!

    yeah, post more.

    also in spanish, you put the adjective behind the noun, instead of in front like english right?

    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)
    queso= cheese

    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!



    how do you say usted? is it like you-sted or us-ted?



    could you maybe do like pronunciation things like the dictionary has?

    Here is a lesson on “usted” from http://www.spanishdict.com/translate/usted

    pronoun personal
    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

    usted [oos-ted’]
    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.

    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!)
