Hey, thanks! This is great. I love that it has audio too and it's a perfect pace. Very clear pronunciations, not too slow and not telemundo BARABABABABABABABABAAB fast. Great find!

Are they english to spanish or american to mexican?

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/CharlesDain

Why was this down-voted? It's a perfectly valid question. As far as I can tell, the jokes and stories are all written in South American Spanish, and I did not recognize any of the stories, so they probably weren't translated from American English. Don't know about Queen's English. Some of the jokes were taken from Hollywood and Vaudeville though.

I believe it was down-voted because it is an ambiguous question. After looking at the site , it seems that the site wants to portray good Spanish. It does not say where the stories originate from and there is no mention of a Mexican language nor an American language.

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/johnjay1945

I could have just as easily said South American spanish. It is an important point because there are many differences between Spanish spoken in Spain to that in the Americas, the same apllies to English spoken in England to that spoken in America. Duolingo rejects words spelt as it would be in England if it is different to that in America. I moved from England to Spain and have been learning the language here in Spain, I love Duolingo as can been seen from my level 25 and 289 streak but it can be frustrating at times because of it's inflexiblity.

Maybe Duolingo needs an American English for Queen's English speakers course. XD Seriously though, Duolingo should accept both American and Queen's English, because they are both widely spoken.

I heard the English equivalent when I was five (It was in a Marx Brothers movie, I think) , so I guess it's just old to me. Translating jokes on that site has really helped me strengthen my Spanish skills though. Muchas Gracias.

Thanks for this! My library has tons of foreign language books but they are hard to search through and even when I find Spanish books to read I still have to search to make sure it's at a level I'm comfortable with
