Hi fellow learners!

I want to know, if "tu es muy muy papa" is the correct translation of: "you are very very potato." I want to impress a girl, and give her a nice compliment in Spanish. But i want to make sure my compliment is correct. thanks.

Tú eres muy, muy papa. It would also mean "you are very very pope". And it's just as bad grammar in Spanish as in English. May I suggest "Tú eres una gran papa" - "You are a grand potato". Good luck.

Be careful with calling people of other languages "potato", you never know what may happen ;)

A great site to help you get translations from native speakers is http://lang-8.com/ You can also help others by correcting their translations. A very nice site, and very useful. FREE!
