Hi Dani,

I would be happy to help you with your english in exchange for your help with spanish. I am an english (ESL) teacher, so correcting people's english is my profession. Could you tell me how to say " Hold the scissors straight and turn the paper. Don't turn the scissors." I need to teach my kindergarten students how to use scissors !

Thanks,

Paula

Hola Daniel,
I'm actually looking to move back to Spain next year (I lived in Alicante last year), but since I'm in Canada right now, I don't have many opportunities to practice my Spanish.
I'd love to do an intercambio!
Let me know If you'd like, send me a PM and we can exchange email addresses or something.
Un saludo!

In this particular case, I would say:

Mantened las tijeras derechas y haced girar el papel. No giréis el papel.

Margot,
Realmente, todo se encuentra en el red. El hilo sobre las tijeras estaba perfecto para mí.

Gracias

I'm glad you're a teacher and not me, because I would probably be looking for the translation to, "Do that again and I'll pretend those corporal punishment laws were never revised."

Hmmm -- Hazlo otra vez y fingiré que esas leyes de castigo corporal nunca fueron revistas?

Dani, leí en tu perfíl que tu película favorita es Big Fish. ¿Por qué? A ti, qué te gustó? Tiene la distinción (raro en estes días) de no tener Johnny Depp en ningún papel. (Te quiero, Johnny, pero a veces quiero ver otras caras.) No estoy segura que sentí que el papel quedó bien a Ewan MacGregor, pero disfrutí mucho los otros actores y muchas de las escenas fantásticas.

La película me encantó por los mensajes que tiene (o al menos que yo interpreté). Por ejemplo, que no hay que ser conformista. Siempre hay que buscar cosas nuevas y no quedarse en un mismo lugar (aunque ese lugar pueda parecer el mejor del mundo).
Es cierto que Johnny Deep no salió. Supongo que Tim Burton hace bien en no contar siempre con él.

Corrijo lo que has dicho:

Hola a todos. Me encanta mucho la pelicula Big Fish. Es muy creativo y tiene un buen mensaje. Honestamente no he gustado las peliculas recientes de Burton y Depp.
