Ohai Spanish Forum!

Ahoy folks, I have been checking out your forum and I must say it seems rather awesome I currently have an abundance of free time on my hands, and wish to put it to some productive use. Hence; I now lurk these forums for the definite future.

My first contact with Spanish was during age 13 when I studied it once a week as a mandatory topic in school. At the time being, I did not care very much for learning another language (Which was strange, since I actually find languages interesting. On the other hand I was still a kid and felt somewhat uncomfortable riding my bike through town to end up in the random mish-mash class of students from different schools).

Anyhow, during the subsequent 6 years I barely used Spanish at all, so I now remember close to nothing. When I decided to learn another language however, Spanish instantly came to mind. I downloaded the podcast 'Coffe Break Spanish' and listened to the free season 1, which defibrillated my memory to a certain degree.

Listening to people teach the language was great, but I soon hit a point where I felt one could only learn so much from hearing other people speak the language without actually interacting in it on my own accord.
Long story short, I thought I'd hang around here and fire off some gramatically incorrect messages now and then, in the hopes of improving my ability to convey my thoughts a little

To introduce me personally, I'm 21 years of age and live in Sweden. I have been to a Spanish speaking country only once (Gran canaria) where I spake a total of 10 different words in total. Although I used those 10 words very, very often.
I effervesce adventure, and never pass up a chance to climb a good tree or the like. Which is what got me into geocaching. Other than running around outside looking like a total 10-year-old I crave a steady supply of boardgames to keep me amused. I play most about anything, but I often find myself enjoying competitive games with way too many rules more than the standard round of Monopoly. (I'm considering purchasing a Warhammer army, so if You want to discuss that with a newbie then by all means).

Jokerstyle out!

Hi Tomisimo.

Was it the link to the Geocaching website that was considered spam?
My apologies, I feel I need to add that the only reason I included the link was to give people reading my post a quick summary of what it was, I had no intention of promoting the website nor was it the intention of my post.

Since the website in question has no affiliation with anything that could be considered your competition, and is free to use and seemingly already quite widespread I misinterpreted the rules and thought it was okay to add the link.

Again, not to critize your decision, merely to make an attempt at justifying my thinking. Sorry we got off on the wrong foot.

Edit: Dangit, I noticed the rule now: New members: Do not post any link to any website until you have established yourself as an earnest member of the community. Sorry about that!

Hello I'm fine although I'm a little sick of my throat then I have to go again to the doctor, one week ago I was sick of the same situation and the wrong of the business is that I can break well sometimes in the high ready I live very close of the beach, I mean in front of the beach.

But in other things I'm fine enjoy one relax in my house and the computer too.
Already I'm posting frequently in the forums because I have more time now, I'm not working for the moment and I'm taking on my own one hard study of this language English in my case.

Where you come from?
Where do you live?

I'm Mexican and you?

Where did you born?

Hmm, I think that así makes more sense in this context than aquí/acá.

Thanks for the replies!

...ací que hablo Sueco y...
is supposed to mean
...So I speak Swedish and...

According to some podcasts I've listened to and the almighty google translator, So is translated as Asi Que (I misspelled it in my sentence)I did a google search, and it seems entonces is also used in the sense of "therefore".

Which of these do you think is the most correct?
Vivo en Suecia, así que hablo Sueco
Vivo en Suecia, entonces hablo Sueco
