Re: Argentine peso on the way to above 70

The underlying problem for Argentina has always been that everyone wants to live as a capitalist but expects the rest to be socialists. If that doesn't gum up the financial works, I don't know what will. Their underground economics principle is: “El vivo vive del zonzo, y el zonzo de su trabajo.” --...

Re: Spanish school recommendations for HS student?

If there is a lesson in all this, it is that if you want to make it in a foreign country whose language you don’t know, go out of your way to learn it if you want to make it there. Osmosis alone is not enough. --------------------------------------------------------- Where there is room for corrupti...

Re: Spanish school recommendations for HS student?

Por supuesto. Sería bueno que en este foro hubiese una sección dedicada al idioma español, siendo que concierne mayormente a la vida en un país de habla hispana y muchos de los miembros han mostrado un interés en aprenderlo, lo que tiene sentido. -----------------------------------------------------...

Re: Spanish school recommendations for HS student?

"Oink oink" sería lo de menos. No deberías de haber mencionado “Pepa la cerda”. Si alguien aquí se le ocurre tomarla como ejemplo en su manera de hablar, se le arruina la vida. Después de haberla escuchado por un minuto, se me dio por empezar a insultar a los demás con acento ibérico. --------------...

Re: Spanish school recommendations for HS student?

Those who expect to learn a language relying on instructors rather than the student have the wrong approach. "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings." In this day and age, the key to learning a language fast is to watch plenty of television—and/or video...

Re: Spanish language school recommendations

Del diccionario de La Academia Real Española:

enseñar
Instruir, doctrinar, amaestrar con reglas o preceptos.

Re: Spanish language school recommendations

The original comment was a double entendre . Do I need to explain that the word “enseñar” has two different meanings?
