Hi All,

I have been trying to learn Spanish off and on for a few years now. I guess I'm just too stubborn to give up. I can understand a lot of what I read in Spanish, but when I turn on Univision I get very frustrated. Maybe I'm expecting too much. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and hopefully I can try to comunicate some in Spanish on this forum and learn some more. [H]

Muchas gracias. What's a good way to say "Corrections to my Spanish are always welcome." I came up with "Correcciónes de mi español son invitado siempre." I'm sure that sentence could use some work Emotion: stick out tongue,

Yo soy de el sur de los Estados Unidos de América. (currently Louisiana).
hey there Bruce!

let´s see.. you can say:

LAS CORRECCIONES A MI ESPAÑOL SON SIEMPRE BIENVENIDAS

SON SIEMPRE BIENVENIDAS LAS CORRECCIONES A MI ESPAÑOL...

i prefer the 1st one.. i dont know why.. it just sounds better i think...

so, from America, huh? i was in California for a few months...great place by the way! i loved it! though it s not true that: IT NEVER RAINS IN CALIFORNIA!! not only it rained, but snowed and it was by far, my coldest summer vacations! jajaaja...

see ya! [D]
¨ Yo soy de el sur de los Estados Unidos de América¨

first tip: you have to use a contraction in this sentence. here:

( YO ) ( it s not necesary to use always the personal pronoun in spanish, well, sometimes it is, but not in this case) ...SOY DEL SUR DE (LOS) ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA.

DEL: DE + EL. Another example: me baje DEL autobus ( here we use the word ¨ colectivo¨instead of bus)... ( i got off the bus )

AL: A + EL. Fui AL medico.( i went to the doctor. )

hope this helps! please correct my english as well..

see ya...

Yeah, most people think of L.A. when they think California, but that state has a huge range of climate.
