What I was trying to say..

Hello!
I want to talk about me, my best friend, family and dogs. My best friend is very pretty and funny. She is energetic although sometimes calm. She is divorced but happy. My mother is very nice and likeable, gentle and never selfish, jealous or mean. I think my son is rather gifted and faithful. My dogs are cute although not disciplined much. They are mean when angry. I am polite, in love and engaged.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you so much! You are very appreciated! I'm attempting to use some of the vocabulary words from a flashcard set that I just purchased. Some of the words were quieto/a=calm, cortes=polite, relativamente=rather, talentoso/a=gifted and fiel=faithful. I noticed that you made alternate suggestions for these words. I know that sometimes courses include words that are not USUALLY used often in real-life Spanish conversations. Is that the case here? Thanks again!

Well, on the suggestions this may be my "subjective" "style". I.e., some people may use more often the translations in your flash-cards... That's why I just noted as blue, as the way you have these is not incorrect at all.

Like... I personally would say "un perro fiel" or "un marido fiel", but I would tend to use "un chico digno de confianza". That may just be my personal liking. As long as you understand you can get familiar with words and synonyms and if you start reading and listening to native Spanish speakers, you may notice what is more common in your area, and have your own criteria to choose.
At any rate, you are doing good. Keep it up! :) :thumbsup:
