A Small Amazing Conversation Moment Out In The Real World!

So apparently a young woman from the Dominican Republic asked me where the store was in my area, and out of nowhere i started to guide and have a small conversation with her! Like i was a native spanish speaker!

I just want to thank Duolingo for offering free education all over the world!

Hasta Luego :D

So, in Spanish, names are written differently?

June 8, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/AndresGarner

Yep, Some names do (some names don’t though.)

For instance: John would be Juan and Mary would be María.

Just European names do? I wonder if Arabic names would change.. Thanks Andrés!

Okay, I'll ask her, thanks again!

Hmm...I honestly have no idea. I am newer to Arabic so maybe this is a question for Sassy.

Most European names do translate in Spanish though.

Well I'm not exactly that far into Spanish to know [as you can see on my level] XD But I doubt they change to be honest :) Don't quote me out on that though!

I guess it'd be the same, only with a bit of a Spanish accent ;p

HMM let's guess: Gracias means thanks, por means for, compartir means to share, tu means your, and historia means story, so thanks for sharing your story... wow it looks like French! XD

June 8, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/AndresGarner

Wow! I’m impressed, you got it right and you are not even studying Spanish, right?

June 8, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/sousoudoudo

Really?! everyone says that Spanish is so close to French, I don't know anything about Spanish except for Hola and Gracias :)

https://www.duolingo.com/AndresGarner

You seem like you would do really well in Spanish (maybe you should give it a try one day.)

Do you speak French?

June 8, 2019

Yup a little...

Hola, I studied Spanish for a bit without Duolingo and it was BORING. When mi Madre found Duolingo I dropped Spanish and moved on. Maybe one day I will pick it back up. Buenas Noches!
