Hey, would it be appropriate to ask a Latin American woman to bring a translator to a date? Maybe a friend who can speak English?

Why don't you just learn Spanish? It isn't that hard. If you want to have a serious relationship with one of these latinas either you will need to learn Spanish sooner or later or she will have to learn English.

I have no time! It's not that easy when you have a full-time job already.

Ya why not. But only if she loves me. Because it will be better for me to understand her lovely feelings and she will also not face a problem in explaining me the same.

Well, I don't really see another option. How can you expect to have a relationship with someone you can't even communicate with?

All right, all right. I just got a copy of Spanish for Dummies. Are you happy now?

Those "dummies" books go into meticulous detail and really get beginners going.
I never used that book per sé, but I have used Microsoft SharePoint 2010 for Dummies before and it was a banger! I loved it! It got me up to snuff in how to use SharePoint Designer 2010 just like that.

Check out the Spanish for Dummies, and make it a a daily habit to read, recite, and internalize.

:D Learning from that book is a good start but you should also immerse yourself in Spanish as much as possible. Watch tv and Youtube videos in Spanish, listen to latin music, etc. That's the best way to learn IMHO.

If you like soccer, watch that too. Watch the telenovelas as well. The women are so f***ing hot it is hard to change the channel. It is easy to watch 1 hour easy. That makes for good practice long term and they tend to use good Spanish for the most part, but not so textbook, you would be lost listening to a real Spanish speaker.

You can also find a nice gal to help you practice. Sometimes you can learn alot about a woman's level of patience by constantly asking her language questions. :wink:

Don't worry, you can have that advice for free. Your welcome. :lol:

Oh man, I know what you mean about those telenovelas. I was hooked on Corazon Valiente for a looong time. The USA just doesn't have women like that anymore. Those women are so hot, I felt like I was going to burst into flames, and I'm not kidding.

Yeah, watching telenovelas is a good way to learn Spanish. The Mexican ones have the easiest to understand Spanish, but their stories are pretty much always the same.

If you want to watch a great telenovela check out La Reina del Sur. It is a bit different from the usual telenovelas and actually has a good story.

Another good one is the Colombian telenovela Sin Tetas No Hay Paraiso. The Colombian Spanish in this one is quite hard to understand though, so it will probably take a while before you can understand it.

Like LadiSlav said before, he knows that they expect you to speak-a Spanish in Latin America - point - blank.
Huh? Point blank??
