You can search them in youtube website.

Really there're a lot of website with subtitles in Spanish, so as you can watch movies and you can see videos of people speaking Spanish and in the topic is the translation in English, you can watch them in cinetube.es, I hope my website doesn't be a spam for the administrator.

Now if you are finding a website as dictionary only, Tomisimo website has one.

Please if you have doubts here we can help you in the translation.

Don't hesitate to ask us.

your website is so useful!

however, for a starter in spanish language, it is hard to comprehend spoken spanish, it would be more proper to read texts in spanish and their english translation

Don't just read texts. You have to do a little of both in order to actually become fluent.

The Day it Snowed Tortillas by Joe Hayes and Antonio Castro Lopez is a book of folktales from many Spanish speaking countries with the English translation on the other side of the page.

@Rusty thanks for the links. I have a question regarding the use of the word
"sangrías"(Bleeding), In a Spanish sentence, can "sangrías"(bleeding) apply to things as well?

Thanks.

I don't understand your question. Could you give more context?

Sangría is also a wine punch.

What is a wine punch? Is it an alcoholic beverage?

Please look at Rusty's link the first one:

Http://www.4olin.com/chapter1/one.html

Please look at the second paragraph. Are both the Spanish and English version correct in context regarding with the use of "sangría" (bleeding)?

Thank you

This is a sarcastic paragraph. He is comparing the bleeding with leechs, which was a very common remedy at that time, with a cut his father made on the sack. "Sanguijuela", leech, means also a person who, little by little, gets whatever he needs. So, he is comparing his father with a leech.

El Lazarillo de Tormes is a very interesting book, but it may be a bit difficult for beginners, since it was written about 16th century.



Sorry, I forgot to explain what a "sangría" is. Yes, this is an alcoholic beverage with wine, fruits, sugar, brandy, orange, some lemon and cinamon (people change the recipe as they like).

Sangría:
