It's crazy, I've met lots of kids from LA that don't know a word of spanish! In any case, he is learning it at least... I grew up in Miami and even though my panamanian father never taught me spanish as a child, I learned it from speaking to my latin friends and just about anyone in any restaraunt or at the beach or where ever, it's omnipresent in miami, so ask away, you shall be helped by many on this board

I might not be a native speaker, but being in AP Spanish, I'm pretty darn close to fluent by this point.

Con que' te puedo ayudar? (What can I help you with?)

Here are some helpful words that I could think of to describe people. I stuck the accent marks and tildes (~) next to the letters because I don't know how to write them in on the forum...

tall - alto
short - bajo
fat - gordo (gordiflo'n - fat man, gordiflona - fat woman)
skinny - delgado, enjuto
blond - rubio
brunette - moreno
caring/kind - carin~oso
unpleasant - antipa'tico
friendly - simpa'tico
smart - inteligente
stupid - estu'pido
good-looking (handsome) - guapo
pretty - bonito
crazy - loco
wealthy - rico
poor - pobre
he/she is _ years old - e'l/ella tiene _ an~os
he/she is from - es de...
he/she lives in - e'l/ella vive en...
I like to spend time with him/her - Me gusta pasar el rato con e'l/ella.
If I had the opportunity, I would leave my family and I would live with them - Si tuviera la oportunidad, saldri'a de mi familia y viviri'a con ellos.
I see them rather frequently. - Los veo con alguna frecuencia.
I rarely see them. - Rara vez que los veo.
They live far away from us. - Ellos viven lejos de nosotros.
He/she goes to _ college/university ... - E'l/ella asiste a la universidad de...
He/she recently got married. - E'l/ella se caso' recie'ntemente.
If it were my decision, I would send them to live on Mars. - Si fuera mi decisio'n, yo los mandari'a para vivir en Mars.

Some of them are goofy, but many of them will hopefully help you out...

Grandmother: abuela --> Mother's mother therefore is "abuela maternal."

Have you tried this:
http://babelfish.altavista.com

However, I strongly suggest that if you use translation assistance, that you double check the translations for idioms, verb and gender agreement, and word order. Otherwise your teacher will know you c-h-e-a-t-e-d.

From the DOS era, when I first learned to use a computer, here it is... a short guide to write tildes if your keyboard doesn't have them:

ALT + 160 á
ALT + 130 é
ALT + 161 í
ALT + 162 ó
ALT + 163 ú
ALT + 164 ñ
ALT + 165 Ñ

Luis, what browser are you using? I'm currently using IE  embarrassed  and it's working fine. Check the menu under Ver -> Codificación, Europeo Occidental (Windows) should be selected. Hope it helps!



Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.
