    spanish lessons

    There's always something to learn or to try, many times you need to say some phrase in Spanish, but you don't know how to say it. Don't worry, your problems have finished

    For instance, we took from it some common phrases, just try and you're gonna see the difference and howeasy is speak Spanish

    Boy as n r = Voy a cenar = I'm gonna have a dinner

    N L C John = en el sillon = on the armchair

    Be a hope and son = viejo panzon = fat old man

    S toy tree stone = estoy triston = I'm kind a sad.

    Lost trap eat toss = los trapitos = the little rags

    Desk can saw = descanso = (you) rest.

    As say toon as = aceitunas = olives.

    The head the star mall less stan dough = deje de estar molestando = stop bugging me

    See eye = si hay = yes we have

    T n s free o? = tienes frio? = are you cold?

    N L C John = en el sillon = on the armchair

    Should be

    N L C Yon

    double "L" is always pronounced with a "Y" sound... a "yuh" sound.

    Actually if you pronounced any of those spanish phrases the way those are "spelled" out in English, you should like some down home country folk trying to read out of a spanish phrase book that's never spoke Spanish before... And they would look at you funny if you talked to them like that... hehe

    You'd definitely be called a Gringo

    I prefer to not be called "dude"

    If you say if fast, sure it sounds ok, but if you really want ppl to actually say it right, then you have to follow the pronouciation rules of spanish.

    But I can just hear the average non speaking spanish white guy, "N..C..R...John" *with spanish phrase book in hand*

    You know the type that I'm talking about

    There are a lot of difference in the pronunciation depending of where are you from, In Argentina, we pronounce the LL like "sh" and in other countries its pronounced like a "Y"

    1st.) Its more like "I born in Buenos Airesl, but I had been living in Puerto Madryn for 2 years" (I guess, because my english its not that good ).

    2nd) Yes, its "where are you from?"

    The most common way that its used in spanish speakers countries its asking

    "tu de donde eres?" but as I said, it depend of which country are the speaker from, because you wont hear in Argentina to anybody saying it in that way.
