Spanish for beginners

A few helpful phrases and words in foreign languages:

Shut up! (English)
Sei zito! (Italian)
¡Cállate! (Spanish)
Sheket! (Hebrew. Pardon me for not using the original characters, but my computer isn't that talented.)

Granted, I have lost most of my Italian and only took Hebrew for a semester in college. But I still have Spanish, so here are a few more useful phrases, should you need them in the future:

I'm sure you have a dick the size of a peanut. Leave me alone.

Estoy segura que tengas un pene que es el tamaño de una nuez. Déjame sola.
No, I'm not single, and even if I was, there's not a bloody chance I'd let you get in my pants.

No, no estoy soltera, y aunque fuera soltera, nunca te dejaría entrar mis pantalones.

No, I don't come here often. I prefer to come with the help of a sex toy.

No, no vengo aquí con mucha frequencia. Prefiero venir con la ayuda de un jugete de sexo.

Too funny! I used to date this Puerto Rican guy, and I would make him say really absurd things in Spanish. It sounded so poetic! haha

great entry!!!You should teach a class in this. Phrases to say at bars in every language to avoid a beer goggle accident.
My family is chilean and I am glad I cannot understand all the things they say. Chilean is like spanish slang. so I have been taught many swear words over the years.

Funny, those expressions are NOT in my Spanish/English dictionary. Wonder why?? :)

Riot Kitty said...

LOL Maybe I SHOULD teach a class... ;)

Misty said...

YES you should teach a class :) I need to hear the sentences to repeat them well :)

I really miss hearing Spanish. People here don't get why I can read it/understand it.

You know what's fun? Watching Fresh Prince dubbed into Spanish online. The voice over ppl are really good. It's streaming video somewhere - I've lost the link or I'd post it.

For all my residual Spanish knowledge, I'm out of practice enough to not remember how to pronounce aunque. Is au one sound or two? (This is where my 6 years' worth of French messes up my Spanish.)

Oh yeah - despite the fact that these witty rejoinders of yours would actually be used to rebuff a bar pick up, I'd actually like to rock the boat and ask you how to say 'What's a girl like you doing in a place like this?'

Also - Spanish movie quotes - I'm itching to say:

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need...roads.

Booby traps! That's what I said!

You made a woman meow?

This is my dace space, this is your dance space. Spaghetti arms!

and that's just for starters.

Bwahaha! Chella, I didn't know you had taken Spanish...let me work on those translations ;)

Au = two sounds. "A" and "u"

I still like to watch movies with the Spanish track turned on. But how much MORE fun would it be to watch like...a porn movie with the Spanish track turned on? It is hard enough translating good dialogue but how much better would it be to translate the "quality" dialogue in the average porn flick? there would have to be some doozies in there...

Riot Kitty said...

Oh man! Porn in Spanish! That would be hilarious...
