Hey, I'm learning Spanish. I know we have some Spanish speakers here, so if any of you would be willing to help, that would be so cool! Cheesy I'd appreciate any help I can get.

The imperfect endings for -ar verbs. Smiley
 
Example:
Hablar- to speak
 
Hablaba - I used to speak (example, I used to speak in front of a large group)
Hablabas - You used to speak
Hablaba - They used to speak
Hablábamos - We used to speak
Hablabais - You all used to speak
Hablaban - They used to speak

Ooh, interesting!
 
We have 5 native Spanish speakers at our international school, and we had to interview 2 of them for homework. It was fun. They are all really nice, but the two I interviewed were quite "cruel" by making me write down advanced phrases for my transcription (we're on Chapter 1 in our Spanish book). It's cool though, because I learned some new phrases, lol. I will be advanced. And I'm also reading the Bible in Spanish and comparing it to the English one. I like being able to find out words and phrases on my own. It makes me feel smart. Smiley

There are International Schools here in the Philippines for children of diplomats who work here in the Philippines. So if a country has an embassy here then it's very possible the ambassador's children (if they're school-age) go to an IS. ISs are also open for Filipinos but their tuition are VERY expensive compared to a normal Filipino salary. ISs are as far as I know English-based to accommodate children who does not speak Filipino, i.e. MK. Wink
 
BTW MK, does your school teach Filipino?

JP speaks the truth about international schools. *nods to Master JP* Except our school is a Christian school, with mostly missionary children, a few business kids, and only two diplomats (both from Malaysia, both Muslim, both really cool people). It's an interesting mix, and it's really, really fun. Smiley Due to the small number of people, it's more akin to a "family" than a school, as everyone knows everyone else more personally than in a regular high school.
 
JP, our school used to teach Filipino, but the students all revolted and so they stopped, LOL! Seriously, I think that's what happened. Everyone hated the class so much (don't ask me why, I absolutely love Spanish class) that they just stopped it. This was not the high school, this was the younger grades. I was around when the class was offered, and I can say it was my least favorite class at the time. No offense to the language though, I do like the language. The class was the problem.

In my opinion, studying in an International School is good, mainly because you get exposed to other cultures and you will gin an understanding of other other cultures better. I used to study in an International school when I was a kid...around the ages of 4-6. I had to leave because it was getting too expensive, and my mum put me in a Chinese school so I'd learn Chinese.
 
Now, the college I am studying in has quite a number of International students. Most of the international students in the School of Communication where I am are from Indonesia, with 2 from Brunei. The International students in the school of Hospitality and Tourism are more diverse, with students from Philippines, Africa, France, China, Japan, Singapore, and Korea. Smiley

We've had German, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, and Guatemalan (I think, it's been like 3 years.) exchange students. I always find their stories very interesting, but I haven't gotten to meet any this year yet.

I finished a John Grisham book where the main character is learning Italian. I love it! I really want to be fluent in another language. If there is a free "Teach Yourself Spanish" site then let us know! Gracias!

There are some free Spanish resources available.
  www.byki.com
 
You can download a vocabulary program from that site. It's very good. No grammar. ONLY vocabulary.
  www.studyspanish.com
 
You can find some good resources there, but some of them are 'premium'. There are still many good free things available.
 
http://go.hrw.com/gopages/wl-sp.html
 
This is a weblink supplementary resource for the Spanish textbook we are using. There are links to some activities related to the lessons. You can learn quite a bit from it, although not having the book might be hard.
 
http://education.yahoo.com/reference/dict_en_es/
 
Spanish dictionary I found on yahoo.com. Could be helpful for words you don't know.
 
There you go, JP, you should be able to learn a bit from those places!

Try reading any electronic gadget's instruction booklet.  They write them in about 50 languages now, so you can learn German, French or any other language you care to.  (Now if only they could make it understandable.  Undecided )

Don't trust Heather's Spanish. You know what she said to me?
 
Yo es perezosa.
 
It translates to....I is lazy. She should have said Yo Soy (or maybe even Estoy) perezosa.

technically all it has to be is Estoy/Soy perezosa (don't need the yo). I'm not sure if its an Estar or Ser noun because it could be a permanent thing.. hmmm

Tyler- are you sure you need the "es" in Me llamo? Llamarse is a reflexive which means to be called. I know in French you write "Je m'appelle Claude" (think Friends tv show for the joke) not Je m'appelle est Claude"...
 
I think literally translated you have "I am called is Tyler".
 
if you want "my name is" you need to write "me nombre es"
