My spanish teacher gave me homework over the holidays and I have been trying to figure it out all week but I can't. Today I thought I would try again. I got a couple things but I have only been taking spanish for a couple of months but my teacher thinks I can speak it fluently. I cannot figure it out! Does anyone know what terminan and acompana means?(In acompana there should be a "~" over the "n" but I don't know how to get it on top!)

If you scroll over the link and look at the bottom left of the page where it says "done" once a page has loaded, it shows you the actual address of the link.

how can you speak a lot of portuguese and can't understand spanish?

like terminan is equal to the portuguese word terminam which means "ending" or just "end" and acompana is almost the same as acompanha which is to accompany so i don't see you speaking a lot of portuguese

Ryder1234

Plus terminan and acompana are spelt and pronounced almost like english words. (Terminate and accompany), so you should be able to figure it out without knowing the meaning at first. Lots of times last year in spanish if I didn't know a word I just looked to see if it was similar to an english word, so try that because it helps sometimes.

You'd be surprised. I read and write a fair bit in spanish, but can't do portuguese at all. Ask Gustavo. They are similar in a lot of ways, but simple things like the difference of one letter can throw me off. Not to mention that that sort of idea about how similar spanish and portuguese are doesn't always work out. Some words can seem almost the same in the two languages, but mean completely different things. Same goes for spanish and english. A lot of people like to think that most words that sound similar to an english word are the same thing, but that isn't true. It is in a lot of cases, but you can get yourself into a serious mess making those kind of assumptions.

in general people who speak portuguese tend to understand spanish better than spanish people trying to understand portuguese. at least everyone here including my friends who took spanish aced it.

anyway i am in america. i shouldnt be forced to learn spanish

Yeah, because living in America means you'll never encounter anyone speaking Spanish.


my teacher thinks I can speak it fluently.

I really, really doubt that.

Look, I'm at the university and I have to learn for almost all my exams during the vacation. And I'm not complaining. And about the second thing, I live in Slovakia, and I was ''forced'' to learn French for 5 years, ''forced'' to learn English for 16 years and ''forced'' to learn Spanish for 5 years. And I'm not complaining either. You never know when knowing to speak at least a little bit of any language will be useful for you.

I know what you are trying to say. However, it's better to deal with things in practical terms, not idealistic terms. If you live in the US then knowing Spanish can be occasionally useful. I'm sure you can agree with that?

Learning a second language is never a bad idea. It just helps create a well-rounded individual. And for you, Spanish is likely to be one of the more useful ones.

When I was your age I would have probably completely agreed with you. I hated being forced to study French. Now, however, I wish I had paid attention and actually tried to learn it. Aside from the obvious advantages of knowing a second language it can make you a better person in many subtle ways. For one, it gives you a chance to really explore a culture that is alien to you and broaden your worldview. This is never a bad thing.

This isn't in response to the thread starter because I know she won't give a logical response, but just in general - a big reason that Spanish is becoming required in schools is less because of Mexicans moving to the US, and more because 1) more and more people want their kids to learn a second language and 2) the education system is starting to actually realize the importance and usefulness of having kids grow up with a second language. It just happens that Spanish is the most useful language in the US after English, so it's the easiest to find Spanish teachers and students would prefer to learn it over other languages. I'm not saying that all the Spanish-speakers in the US don't influence this, because of course they do. But it's not quite fair to say that you have to learn Spanish BECAUSE of them.

Well, I support compulsory language learning in schools. It'd be cool if there was more choice in which language you study (and now it's getting to the point where it's more beneficial to learn a language other than Spanish, since it seems like everyone's got that language qualification now...) I'm kind of sad to see that German programs are being phased out in favor of more Spanish, but that's just the nature of society. Nobody wants to learn German (except, as RC said, the trupunx). Sad day.
