i am noticing lotsa of interest in castellano since the last time i pass by this little forum...

we can make a spanish speaking/learning party at my house any saturday, i am trying to introduce my partner to the language / culture (just give a neruda book to her and there is no way that it can be read the same way in english... or korean for that matter :-D ). people say i can make a drinkable sangria (alcohol makes learning easy :-P ) and we love to host people.

we can do musik exchange, for my part i have all silvio rodriguez and mercedes sosa if you guys are interested, and depending on the amount of people maybe a spanish language movie day (i love argentinian and cuban cinema and have some of those movies in the lappie), i dont have tv, hence we will have to see it in my lappie, so the amount of people could be a problem.

i live at the west side (west cove condo) near quite a few nice pubs just in case some of you guys want to meet up to coordinate / arrange dates, or just get to know each other first.

send me a PM if you are interested. just some reminders:

1-it will be way better if whoever comes, comes with an interest on learning, exchanging and sharing about spanish language and cultures.

2-all data exchanged related to copyrighted media, be it sound, video, etc is done under the assumption of "backing up" legally owned media, basically... dont ask, dont tell :-P

Heyyy, very good idea!!! If u want I can help you. My opinion:

- "i am trying to introduce my partner to the language / culture"----> no problem, Im a journalist and I studied the culture, traditions of my country, etc

- " i can make a drinkable sangria"---> perfect!! :D

- "alcohol makes learning easy"---> it is true!! haha

I dont mind to help people because with this type of exchanges, its good to know new people (difficult in Singapore...) and also I can improve my rusty English :-|

hibri2 send me a PM and keep in touch :)

hola!

the Spanish Constitution of 1978 uses the term castellano to define the official language of the whole Spanish State, as opposed to las demás lenguas españolas (lit. the other Spanish languages). Article III reads as follows:
“ El castellano es la lengua española oficial del Estado. (…) Las demás lenguas españolas serán también oficiales en las respectivas Comunidades Autónomas…

Castilian is the official Spanish language of the State. (…) The other Spanish languages shall also be official in their respective Autonomous Communities…

heyyy!,

the people from RAE (http://www.rae.es/rae.html) decides that the official name is Spanish. Believe me that in Spain all people say Spanish and for example, the school bocks in Spain to learn Spanish are called S'panish Language' and not Castilian Language...

by the way, I prefer party!!! :cool:

Hola Singapur !

Postby Singapour » Fri, 03 Jul 2009 5:47 pm

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the late message.
I do not know whether the party is open to new comers but I have been living in Latin America for a while almost 2 years ago.
My spanish is getting rusty and I would be happy to practice.

Please advise me!

Thank you.


Bye.
