Spanish

posted by .

I have to write a basic paragraph describing myself for Spanish class. I have translated it several times on several different sites, but I'm still not sure if it is correct. Something seems wrong.. I would greatly appreciate any corrections.

My name is Lace and I am from Arizona in the United States. I am very outgoing and nice. I am patient. I like to swim and paint. I do not like music or playing sports. I do not like to dance.

Me llamo Lace y yo soy de Arizona en Estados Unidos. Soy muy atrevido y agradable. Soy también paciente. Me gusta nadar y pintura. No me gusta deportes o música. Tampoco me gusta bailar.

Also, I have to read a passage in Spanish and record it on a CD to turn in. Is there a website that I could type the passage in and listen to audio to make sure I'm pronouncing words correctly? I have tried search engines with no luck.

    A translation page won't help you. Don't think in English first. That is a big mistake.

    Write what you think is correct in Spanish then go from there.

    en los Estados Unidos
    If yu are feminine, all the adjectives referring to you must be feminine too: atrevida

    Me gusta nadar y pintar (parallel construction means both infinitives)

    Ne me gustan deportes ni música. Sports are NOT (plural) pleasing to me, nor music.

    Here are the Spanish audio sites:

    You should do fine if you remember to have the vowels clear.
    a = ah (like at the dentist)
    e = a (like the first letter of the alphabet)
    i = e (like the 5th letter of the American alphabet)
    o = oh (clear o)
    u = oo (rhymes with too, boo)

    If you are reading what you wrote, be sure the 2 words with accent marks have the stress on the 3rd syllable from the end.

    llamo is like yah-moe
    z = s or th in Spain (Arizona)

    Good luck and after you have made one tape study any corrections carefully so the next one is better!

    Oh, wow, very informative. I had no idea about that if you are feminine the adjectives should be as well. That site is exactly what I needed.

    Thank you for your time and effort, I really appreciate it. Have a good day! :]
