    yeah, i got the basics, but if you want to sponsor a trip to spain to learn in a spanish environment, i will be more than willing to leave and go.

    You are right. I am fluent, yet find it difficult to translate songs on this forum that contains a lot of slang...when i was visiting Colombia and Cuba, i had such difficult time understanding songs on the radio.

    i'll give you some websites to check out. as for rap local (dominican rap) Toxic Crow, Cromo, and the rest of Complot Records are all good. Vakero is pretty good (gotta show love to another Blood- Soo Woo), Sheng, Shelow Shaq. I pretty much can find at least one good song from every one on any of the sites i listed. I just hate Lapiz Conciente (even though he has really good beats).

    yea, i like it more than English rap cuz they're more influenced by old school. Toxic Crow has a straight up old school flow, i love it!

    if you're part Jamaican, you might as well start with dominican stuff because they sound like jamainicans speaking spanish whenever they talk (i wish i had an accent like that )

    -S@R@- first, I want to know the alphabet and the pronunciation, the numbers, the conjugation of the verbs (the regular аnd the irregular verbs), the degrees of comparison ( I mean more ... , the most ... , ... -er, the ... -est, as ... as, ... then ... and ect.) .Then the syntax (The Tenses,The formation of the active and negative sentences,The Passive and The Active voice,The reported speach and so on).Or for short - everything but I think that It's impossible for you to explain everyting to me.So tell me some phrases which are in general currency and which I can use everywhere (I mean "Qe pasa?", "Caliente", "Loco" and so on).Please -S@R@- if you can - do it. If you want, I will teach you of some bulgarian in return.

    @pitbull_toma: I moved your post here cause "learning bulgarian" thread wasn't appropriate for your request. I'm not spanish but i know quite well and I can help you a little bit with simple things like the pronunciation, conjugation of the verbs etc.

    I'm not Spaniard, but I study Spanish lang. at university. I speak it fluently as well, but I still find the Spanish spoken in Spain more specific than the one spoken in Mexico, let's say. My former teacher is a Mexican and I was quite used to the Mexican sound and pronounciation of the Spanish, but now at university there are professors from Spain strictly, so I somehow had to get used to the more difficult (but according to me more melodic) castellano. Oh, yeah, and I completely removed the seseo from usage. xP But I like the castellano a lot. (catalán as well, but there is no one to teach me catalán here =) At first, I found it complicated to pronounce the /z/ and /c/ in rapid speech. But now, as our professor is from Madrid and we communicate every day, it's no big deal anymore. He even "imposed" his madrid /j/,/g/ to us, so now my friend from Asturias tells me I was talking posh, since people from Madrid were considered pijos. (Is 'posh' the correct translation of 'pijo'? :S never mind xP)
    I quite like the argentinian accent as well. It has a unique touch somehow
    I like that you guys discuss many different spanish dialects here. It's interesting to compare and learn sth new than what you're already studying.
