Being the language lovers that we are... A place to talk about, or write in languages other than Spanish and English.

Thanks.
Then you speak Italian language and your tongue language is Spanish, you are naturally born in some place or country where is firstly spoken the Spanish.

That's great, because then you should to have a fluently speech, you could to teach your Spanish to other users signed here in the forums.


I'd like to practice with someone but in English, in essence of that I can practice more my English skills.


Sincerely yours.

Remember as is the conjunction(it's use as a preposition is pretty limited) and like is the preposition. In ordinary nonformal English, like is sometimes used as a conjunction. That's OK as long as the speaker is aware that it isn't quite right. The opposite (as me) doesn't work nearly as well in English.
Easy rule: like goes with me, as goes with I.

Spanish speakers always talk about how similar it it to Italian, but I find
spoken Italian baffling. I sometimes go to an Italian restaurant where the
Italian waiter has taught the Spanish-speaking busboys to speak Italian.

El mesero crió un ambiente muy simpático. Unos jóvenes de Mexico llegaron a EEUU y aprendieron italiano en su trabajo pero muy poco inglés. La vida tiene sus ironías.

Hello.

In my own view point, I the tatos aren't my typo, already that some picture or draws in your body looks impolite and not polite.

I don't know maybe my way thing is past of vogue, but well I respect all the different points and thinking of the people.


I don't like the tatoos draws in my body.
