Well, I see you are up late too! I'll print this out so I can read it more easily and be right back!
OK. Please be more careful with the spelling, especially the accents. I've said it before: "you absolutely must learn how to do the accent marks on the computer." You DO have the charts, right? Usually I refuse to read anything without the accent marks!
First word "Me" has to be "Mi."
Christmas Eve = la Nochebuena
Mas = Más
esa moche = esa noche
fuimos en = fuimos a China Town (OR "we were in" = estábamos en...)
restauraunt = restaurante
me gusto = MUST have accent mark = me gustó
alli = alí
Despues = Después (see how much time I'm wasting adding accents?)
anduvimos en el metro = we walked IN? Please remember, also, that when you don't provide the English of what you are trying to say, I can't always guess.
una mujer mayor, ella = drop ella
sania = no such word and I can't guess
cancion = canción
Tambien = También
el metro de Nueva York = is better than "en" N.Y.
The "ball" that drops is better as "esfera" = Actually is "ball" the best word in English? I've never seen it.
alli = allí
justo = not good; try "poco antes de que ellos empezaron....."
alli = allí el Ano = el Año Nuevo
Este dia = Este día....por que = porque
Aha! How lucky you are with new MAC. It's so easy to make accent marks with the MAC. After you practice a few times, it will be a "snap!"
For Macs, in most cases, first hold down the "Option" key on the keyboard and then strike a regular character key as indicated below. Nothing will appear on your screen at this point. Release both keys, and then type the letter which should carry the diacritical. For some special characters press "Option" and one key together. See the following table to get the character that you want.
To find characters others than those listed above, choose Key Caps from the Apple menu for a diagram of your particular keyboard. Vary the font that is displayed by selecting other fonts from the new menu "Key Caps" which will have appeared at the right of your menu bar. The Apple Language Kits offer additional foreign language fonts and Zapf Dingbats consist of nothing but special characters.
