Are you spanish challenged ?

  • If you are like me and don't understand a word of spanish, I found a free app for my Android phone called Itranslate.  You can speak directly into the phone and it will translate in spanish on your phone.. I asked some basic questions Like how old are you? where do you live? do you allow pictures ? and it translated them into spanish for me.

    So you might give it a shot, its free at the play store... I'm sure there is a version for the Iphone

  • Google translate has a free app. I also use an app that's called 100% Spanish and contains a lot of basic phrases.

  • My spanish is pretty good for a gringo. I have just been consistently exposed to and studied it off and on throughout my life. I was also married to a Puerto Rican chick for 7 years and picked up a lot from her.

    I didn't realize how much I knew until I went to bb's and puerto plata in November and was forced to speak, and to my surprise and delight I was pretty well conversational. Not perfect but able to get by. Since then I've done some digging and if you guys are interested my recommendation is to get the courses by Michel Thomas. Start out with the beginner course aka Total Spanish. The next two are Perfect Spanish and then the Spanish Masterclass. All you need to do is listen to a cd or two every day and speak with it. I've seen a lot of classes and this one has brought my spanish up by far more than anything else I've ever done.

    Also listening to reggaeton and bachata and other spanish music helps a lot. It used to give me a headache but now I work out to it and it becomes more enjoyable as you pick up fluency.

    Last but certainly not least when you go to the DR, speak the hell out of the language. The girls want to and they will help you get much better. I am looking forward to my trip not only for the chicas, but also because I know my spanish skills will be much tighter after each trip.

  • There are a lot of packages out there ... varying from the very basic ('Donde es el baƱo?' ... 'Dode esta la cerveza?' ... 'Donde estan las chicas?') to the very comprehensive. And, yeah, you can get along with next-to-no Spanish, but the more you've got, the better you can get along.

    I found a package called Penton's Spanish 24 that has been a big help to me - it's very comprehensive, with 24 CDs and seven booklets. Actually, it includes three courses - 'Learn In Your Car: Spanish,' nine CDs that start out very basic and build up into a pretty thorough treatment of grammar and verb tenses; 'VocabuLearn,' twelve CDs that help you build your vocabulary and memorize hundreds of typical phrases; and 'Immersion Plus Spanish,' three CDs of conversations in Spanish to help you get used to the language. I got a lot of good out of it.

    The bottom line is - learn what you can before you go. Get at least a basic package, and work your way through it - play them in your car on the commute instead of The Morning Mouth on your local radio station - dig in with them. (And Casper is absolutely right about listening to Spanish music - and Spanish radio when you get more advanced!) Then, use it when you get there - the most advanced lessons will be just talking with the locals, especially the chicas!

  • Yup, completely Spanish Challenged.

    Google translate gives you broken up Spanish, however, one good thing is that now it has offline packages.

    You can translate Spanish -> English and vice versa without being connected online, which is a big plus, especially if you travel to locations with out receptions of data or WiFi.

    I chalk up to my generation being lazy, but I don't know how people survived without phones or the internet back in the day.

    the offline translation, where do u find that? i assume there is a download site on google translate?

    as for the cellphones and internet, things worked well back then.  people just had to plan their day, plan their work and not fly by the seat of their pants.

    the cell phone and internet can drive one a bit nuts, the incessant texting  of minute thoughts, rapid fire 5 word texts over a period of time with no regard for the person on the receiving end.  i will simply call the person and ask what they want.  as for the internet, there is a wealth of info out there and that is good, but again, there are problems with that too.  people email and expect u to be checking your email every 15 minutes.  not gonna happen. 

    now days, people try to make their poor lack of planning anothers problem and use technology to try and defend themselves.  also, 100% of emails do not go thru.  i know that for a fact.  i honestly think the u.s. mail has a better track record of getting every piece of mail where it is supposed to go than the internet does

    i carry my phone about 12-14 hours a day, not in the evenings, often not on the weekends.  drives people crazy not having the instant contact.  i kind of like the peace and quiet of not having it on me

  • Download Google app from the Play Store (if you use Android) or the App store (if you use iOS)
    Start the app, go to menu and go to "Offline Languages"
    From there you can download offline language packs to use for translation when you don't have any data or WiFi reception.

    I have the Spanish one, it's broken, but good enough to get the point across.

    Fair warning, the language pack for each language is around 150-200MB, so if you own a older smartphone with limited amount of storage,
    consider checking how much space you got left.

  • there's a translator app called Jibbigo, offline and sold by language separately.  It is by far the best translator I've had, and for 2.99 there is an add on package to the app that has all the words an monger needs to use with a girl,  fuck, rimjob, dirty Sanchez..... etc.

    An issue I found with google translate and a few others I have and or do use.
    complicated or long winded writings can have bad translations.
    and use punctuation. very very important.
    even google translate on a computer through the web can make huger errors..
    I am getting fair with my Spanish.
    but still need to use a translation program at times.
    if it is important. after you translate to Spanish.
    translate the Spanish text in to English.
    you might have an interesting surprise as to what it says.
    Good times and riches and Son of a Bitches, Ive seen more then I can recall.

    There's an old Cold War joke about an English-Russian translating machine, built for the Air Force.

    They punched in the test phrase "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."
    It came out "The liquor's good but the meat is spoiled."

    Then they punched in the test phrase "Out of sight, out of mind."
    It came out "Blind and crazy.

    Careful with those translation machines, guys ...
