Learning Spanish...

Post by MooNboy » Sun Mar 25, 2007 4:06 pm

Hey, I've got a bright idea!!!
A volunteer, who knows Spanish, teach us spanish in a STICKY topic.And we, those who wanna learn it, try to learn!
If you want, I can teach you Turkish too!
Then we'll know four languages, our mother tongue,English,Spanish and Turkish.Of course Spanish and Turkish people will know three language. What do you say?
Places where Spanish is spoken and Turkey are beautiful places.If we learn these languages, we'll be able to talk to them easily!

Please share your opinions.Then maybe we'll start two 'REAL' online language schools...

Thanks for your support!
idalia who has a nice nick also has a right thought.
As I could see, Spanish and Turkish has similar pronounce!Of course not the same, but similar.
We, the ones who really wanna learn language, will do that and will search for more support.
Oriani, the one I like, says that she knows Spanish... That's interesting, and I know Turkish!!!


Oriani,what do you really think about starting the school?

And the others, please vote and write your opinions...
Thanks...(Teşekkürler)

You and I open 2 new topics, you--> Spanish lessons,Spanish questions; me-->Turkish lessons, Turkish questions.
Then, our good friend and moderator,stick these two topics, and we are the teachers to teach languages...

Admin and moderator didn't tell something about that. That means that it's not out of rules.

I hope that they're happy about my idea.

Oriani the teacher, starting?

Mmm it's a good idea :P but it's supposed that we have to discuss in English only in this forum. I think it can't be possible :?

I voted for it, although I think Oriana is right. This is an English forum for learners of English... Besides, it's great to learn grammar but pronunciation is important, too :roll:

Yes, it is.. But Thanks MooNboy for your intentions. I know you really want to do this. We have Messengers. We can practice grammar there and pronunciation by Skype :wink:

MoonBoy, Sorry for my lateness.

Acording to the objetives of the administrator Joseph, who open this site, Englishclub has the pourpose to be the best place where the english learning could improve the knowledge of Shakespeare language.
Then the rules said "only english in this forum".
If someone want to learn spanish, chinesse japaneese, etc, that person could search the web in order to find a place that help to that objetive.
Sorry boy, Those are the rules. But if you want any help to learn spanish, you could contact the spanish speakers members of EC trough PM, or by mail.
If I could help you you coud contact me by this ways.

Am I late for saying my opinion? I hope I'm not!

Well, I think the idea of learning Spanish here is great but seems the rules don't allow us.

Fortunately there are other ways available. Elba, could you please be my teacher, too? I really like to learn Spanish . In fact one of my friends was teaching me once, but it was only once and didn't continue. I'd be glad if you can help me learn it. And I'd appreciate Oriana if she can help, too :D

Learning Spanish would be an excellent idea because it is the most useful language after English.


I hope that one day i will be able to speak it well, although it will take a lot of time and effort.

I'm in Spanish III honors but I'm still hopeless at Spanish! My pronunciation is good, but whenever I try to speak to a native speaker, my mind goes absolutely blank! I'm reduced to fractured spanglish!

Any tips?

Dear friend,

You have the same proble I have. We only need practice in the real life with any native speaker. Try chatting with Oriani, me, or another latinamerican member. I´m sure we will be happy to chat with you.
You can find me at the messenger as Elba, or Rositah. or writte to mu mail.
