Hola Espanoles!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Zoroaster03, May 14, 2003.


  1. How many of us TB'ers are:
    Spanish/Latin American/Fluent in Spanish Language & Culture?

    I'm taking a year eleven (second to last year of High School) Spanish course, and I'm only in year ten. I'd love to practice mi "skillos" with anyone who'd care to help - mi espanol muchas sucks badly.


    I'll think of specifics when I can remember them. :D


    Cheers in Advance!
     
  2. Cuidado, muneca*. Hay muchos gentes que hablan Espanol aqui.

    I'm not one of them. :p

    I really have to go back to school.

    Buena Suerte.

    Miguel

    * Sorry, I don't have a Spanish keyboard with the "enye."

    Actually, Miguel, you do have an ñ on your keyboard!

    :D

    Hold down the alt key, on the number key type in 164 and you get ñ, hold down the alt key type in 165 and you get Ñ. There's a bunch more in there...have fun! í ó ú º ª ¿ ¢ Ü é â ç ê ë è ï

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee...cough cough cough....

    :p
     
  5. Yo hablo poco español

    (actually I started about 2 weeks ago, just learning off the internet so a thread in Spanish could be very useful....btw, it was the thought of being able to talk with Dave Castelo in his own language that prompted me to try to learn some :D )
     
  6. Gard man, you are the best! :)
    Thank you.

    Cuando llegara Dave Castelo en este thread, sera una fiesta! Como siempre. :D

    I will now shut up.

    Miguel,

    Para tener el tilda (enye?), Tienes que mudar el idioma de lo teclado. Basta ir al "control panel" e seleccionar español o, como en mi caso, português.

    Con el nuevo idioma, oprima ''Shift'' + ''~" + "n''

    Saludos. No sé una lamedura de Spainish, aunque viví en Tejas por
    veinte años. Pero tengo esta característica nifty en un programa
    llamado Sherlock (mac solamente), de que puedo traducir el texto a
    apenas sobre cualquier lenguaje que usted desee. ¿Vea?

  9. Guys, better than this. Select your keyboard input locale as US-International. If you're already using a US layout (as I am) then everything is where it should be, with the added bonus that to accent a character you type apostrophe followed by the vowel to accent, or backtick (`) followed by the vowel to get a grave accent...or tilde then n to get ñ. If you just want the apostrophe then you type a space after it. Try it - it's very useful.
     
  10. Muchas gracias amigo mio, pajaro negro. ;)

    I'm in 2nd year spanish [grade 10]. I have a C in there, but i can't really remember much-just the basics and enough to allow me to communicate with the spanish speaking customers when they want to know about something. Thats all

    I used to speak spanish, pretty well too, I was in spanish 4 when I stopped, but I can't remember a damn thing anymore.

    I can still read it okay, but I can't speak or write it anymore.....er....soy no habla o escribe por que no digo or is that dice...I don't know...:(

    at anyrate, If I ever do remember how to write spanish, getting ñ and é is easy enough on my mac :p
