    I bet that the most Spanish that most people on the forums know is from the monorail speil.

    Okay, here is one of some of the phrases that doesn't translate directly to spanish correctly.

    Spanish: Ir a donde el rey va solo.

    What it is supposed to mean: To powder one's nose.

    Literal: To go where the king goes alone.

    Not entirely true. Many Spanish nouns also take o or a for masculine versus feminine.

    (You can't fool me that easily. I took Spanish 1 for like, five years.)

    Don't take that one too hard, mate--with the possible exception of the African "click" languages, English is the most difficult tongue to learn in the world. Frankly, I admire anyone who wasn't born into an English speaking neighborhood who has even a basic working grasp of it.

    (If you're curious, the think-tanks at Berlitz, probably the name in language studies, consider Spanish to be the easiest language out there to pick up.)

    okay, well I'm sorry, i should have said "most adjectives end in o,a,os,as, however some nouns do also. Additionally some adjectives end in e or es."

    How about these?

    Tengo hambre - I am hungry
    Tengo sed - I am thirsty
    Te quiero - I love you
    Vamos en la playa - Let's go to the beach
    Donde esta el bano? - Where is the bathroom?
    Una toalla por favor - A towel please

    That's all I can remember this morning! Actually, that's pretty much all you need to know if travelling to a spanish speaking country on vacation.
