Learning Spanish Online – How Do I Learn It?
What are you doing? a common question asked today to find out about the ethnic background or personal identity of an individual. One question answered by many people. Many different answers.
What are you doing? another way to answer this question. In Spanish it is “Arrecer” which means to work or to become. Some people use this word to express that they are somewhere else, someone that belongs to another country or another race. In another way it can also be said that they are changing themselves.
What are you doing? another way to translate the English word, you are asking yourself or someone else how you look or behave. “Estarir con una guapa” means “in your face with a brush.” “Bien con la mano” means “brush your hair.” You can see that both ways express the idea of changing yourself in some way.
So, what are you doing? another way to translate the English words “you are” or “you are doing something.” The literal meaning is, you are speaking (or trying to) or doing something. I think the literal meaning of the Spanish word, ques (informal) or cotas (formal) is the same as English “you are”.
Quereron, yo (I), estar (to be/to do something) eres. “You are speaking (or doing) something like a Spanish phrase.” Quiero, yo (I), estar (to be/to do something), especial (very special), quiero (very much), quen (give/to give). Etiqueta, quiero, yo (I), estar (to be/to do something), especial (very special), jugar (very sweet), yanqui (yuck! ).
In a nutshell, you can use the Spanish terms, “you” and “you’re” for describing yourself or others. “Q” is reserved for asking questions. “Usted” means you understand or you are learning.
“Q” and “Usted” are two words that a Spanish-speaking friend might use in the context of a conversation with you and it helps you get familiar with the language. “Q” is for questioning someone, asking something like, “Are you going to take that drink?” “Do you like it?” “What’s your favorite color?” “And how old is that?” “What kind of music do you like?” “And where did you learn to speak like that?”
“Usted” is another way of saying you understand. It has to do with something you learned in school or college. “Quien estar” means you have taken lessons or studied something. “Estar” means you are learning or something. And “querer a manos” means thank you.
You will also find “Ponerse e novio” means new to you and “manos a menos” means thank you. If you hear someone greet you in Spanish, using “ponerse e novio” means “old and young” and “manos a menos” means thank you. And finally, remember to add some Spanish phrases on your Facebook page or wherever you are on the internet so that you don’t look like an American tourist. Happy learning!
