Chatterbox: Inkwell

Hola! Que tal?

Hey everyone! I am learning SPainsh, espanol, and I'm lovin' it! Do any of you Cricket fans know Spanish? The only problem is that I don't have the upside down punctuation on my computer!

To Gretchen O. (October 2007) That's really cool that you're going to take Spanish in highschool. I think I am too! Beck R.G., (July/August 2008) Do you speak Spanish where you live?

Con carino,



P.S. Yo soy una hispanablante americana. Soy alta bastante y cocinar es mi favorito! Soy una muchacha interesante graciosa. Responda, por favor!

I'm learning Spanish, too! I just started, though, so I can only understand half of your P.S. What does con carino mean? In my choir, we're doing a spanish song, and that line is repeated over and over!


Okay, here goes: I am a Hispanic American. I am something and something is my favorite! I am a something interesting funny. Please respond!

Well, it's a start.

Hey, everybuggy, I'm kinda new to this whole thing, but I'll try my best to keep up. By the way, Mona, I speak Spanish pretty well, like Yo no hablo ingles pero yo hablo espanol. My family originates from Spain, so the Spanish comes in handy when speaking to them. Just like you, I love Spanish. Hope to hear more about you soon.

(this is probably rife with errors but what the hey...) 

He estudiado español por tres años, pero vivo en un pueblo mas pequeño y no conozco muchas personas hablan español.

Soy alta y flaca pero no atlético. Me gusta cantar, escribir y leer.

En el verano pasado mi madre y yo viajemos a España, Francia, y Irlanda. Comí muchas cerezas y mucho, mucho pan.  

Mi hermana y yo miramos Sweeney Todd. Laughing

Anyway, why did you say you were "tall enough"? or am I translating wrong?

Aprendo español, pero no soy bueno en hablarlo en todo, así que utilizo a un traductor. Yo no pensé que fuimos permitidos hablar en idiomas de foriegn. Quizá justo en español. ... Yo me pregunto si cualquiera podrá resolver lo que digo...

English: Hi! Good day! Good night! Buenos Aires! (Just kidding!) My name is Kit Kat, and I enjoy dancing, skating, reading, and drawing. I am from Ireland and the United States. I feel fantastic!

 Gaelic: Dia duit! Oiche mhaith duit! Buenos Aires! (Ag mgadh ata!)  And so on and so on, etc. You've heard it two times already.

You speak Gaelic?! REALLY REALLY COOL! I can sing "Fionnguala" (Did I spell that right?) very badly!, but that's all the Gaelic I know. It looks so different written down then it does spoken!At least that's what I think.

I know Spanish, but I was still using an online translator.... :):):)  German people, go to the Blab about Books section!  There's a German thread!  I don't remember the name, but Jonathan made it!  I used a translator on it, too....  It took a long time for them to post it, though.....

I know a teensy little bit of German, but my best to languages are English and Gaelic, because I just moved to America from Ireland. I know a little Norwegian and Russian, and i've been to Norway and Iceland. Too bad I can't talk in Russian, my computer doesn't have Russian symbols on the keyboard! :D Here's Norweigan:

Hvordan har du det? (How are you?)
