Are we going to set times to get together as a group? Are we going to ask each other questions? How do all plan to fulfill our goals in this focus group?

Me gusto mucho los <<tapes>> "Learn in Your Car" by Penton Overseas. Authors Henry N. Raymond and Oscar Ramirez. Creo que son excellentes.

Y tambien, el libro "501 Spanish Verbs," no puede hacer nado sin ello.
Tiny-882b66f75 by Catalina R. over 7 years ago
Y tambien "Destinos, An Introduction to Spanish." Son DVDs/videos con 52 episodios...como un <<soap opera>> pero bueno. Puedes comprarlos, pero son muy caro. Yo fui al biblioteca para los.

And, "Destinos, an Introduction to Spanish." They are DVVDs/videos with 52 episodes...kind of like a soap opera, but good. You can buy them, but they're very expensive. I went to the library for them.

Re: Why is Estados Unidos abbreviated as E.E.U.U.?

Quote:
In Spanish, if a word is in plural (e.g. Comisiones Obreras), the acronym must have the same letter repeated:
Estados Unidos --> E.E.U.U.
Comisiones Obreras --> C.C.O.O



I often wondered that too!Just never got round to asking

Oye Avib,

?QuE es <<Aenied>>?
Tiny-882b66f75 by Catalina R. over 7 years ago
Eric,
Soy higienista dental. Y tengo un trabajo nuevo, trabajando con inmigrantes. Estoy muy emocionado.

I'm a dental hygienist. And I just got a new job, working with immigrants. I'm very excited.
Tiny-default by Eric O. over 7 years ago
Esta Muy Buena Catalina R :-) Los inmigrantes tienen que pagar para el dentista en Los Estados Unidos? En Escocia,una persona solo pagar si trabaja

It is very good Catalina R :-) Do the immigrants have to pay for the dentist in the US ? In Scotland, a person only pays if they work.
Tiny-882b66f75 by Catalina R. over 7 years ago
Eric, Eric, Eric...

Apparently you don't know about our health system here in the United States. It is very, very sad. Many middle class people are not able to afford to go to the dentist, let alone poor people. The government gives something called Medical Assistance (MA)to the very poor, but virtually no dentists will take patients on MA, so there are kids out there with lots of cavities and in constant pain. And the adults? They just loose their teeth. I am so ashamed of this aspect of my country. I am just thrilled for the opportunity to work for a private dentist that does take MA.

Sorry for the lack of Spanish there, it would have taken me an hour to write all that!

Tiny-882b66f75 by Catalina R. over 7 years ago
Hola Penny W,
?Que pasa? ?No esta muy confiando? No se sobre los otros, pero yo estoy diciendo el verdad. Menos mi nombre <<Catalina>>, el cual es un nombre hispana.

Hey Peny,
What's up? Aren't you very trusting? I don't know about the others, but I'm telling the truth. Except for my name, "Catalina," which is a Spanish name.
Tiny-default by Rini C. over 7 years ago
http://www.freewebs.com/spanishforfun is a good site to start at. It has Spanish games and also links to dictionaries and translators.
