Gringo wearing Speedo and half T-shirt in equites line.... Now I know where to sit so I can see you with no problem. So, shall I expect a 6-pack between the T & the Speedo? Posted Image


Of course I have a six pack there! But we have to drink the Sol fast as it gets warm tucked into my speedo...... :P

OMG, I just went through this entire thread and about spewed my coffee on the screen... Please include a disclaimer in the future: “Warning, Gringo’s are about to argue on various proper Spanish pronunciations...”

I will say, Español es mi primer idioma and Carey came closest on on Quintana Roo, but even down to the OP, noone's gotten Cozumel right, but it’s hard to tell on a written forum and not actually hearing it... Go ask a Mexican to say it, there’ll prob be a difference.

:P

I agree Mark. However I would not want to be to critical since I myself personally have my own difficulties with my pronunciation in english. I would never want to offend anyone. Just pointing out the more obvious misspronunciation of "quin". Regarding Cozumel I actually like the more native name Cuzamil but that is another topic. I appreciate it when someone is trying to learn and speak spanish when they are living here. They deserve all the help we can give them.

Oh I know, i was just trying to be funny...

We have so many different dialects, it's hard to say someone is right or wrong, but it's sure fun to argue and poke fun of each other trying to make our point...

All in fun... :)

PS - Oprime el el numero uno para Ingles, dos para Español Mexicano, tres para Español Cubano...

Jajajaja. Excellent joke! Y si es verdad. Espanol Cubano es lo mismo "ma o meo". Would you prefer an occassionaly used pronunciation " Cantina Row"?

Your tips are much appreciated Morenita! And if anyone is offended by your offers of help, that's their problem, not yours. I for one am always struggling learn Mexican Spanish so that I can communicate better not just with service people but also my Mexican and Mayan friends and neighbors. It's also a respect thing, I believe. And, finally, Spanish, like Italian, is a beautiful sounding language. Very musical. I love the rolled r's!

Please keep the tips coming. In fact, I think I should start a learning and pronouncing Spanish forum on here! Will put on my list.

Sounds fair to me I am a sharing kind of guy, and you did give me the info. This might sound like a stupid question, but can you tune them in on a radio or do you have to listen on-line?

Thanks

Could you please start this as a new topic and then I'll delete this post. It's getting lost in the shuffle here, your pregunta/question.

I unconsciously jerk my body for 15 seconds when folks say Cozumel improperly...then I'm left with an eye tic for 30 minutes. My toes curl up too. I'm not a very attractive person anyways. I never correct them any more...it does no good. Smiles.
