    Hi Nene! Since you opened your self for correction... here is one: Majority in Spanish is mayoría. There is no such word as "majoridad" that I know of.

    Peace!

    Nena, thanks for the rep. Since you are looking to learn Spanish, here is another suggestion. I understood as you stated above that you like to go dancing. When you say that you go in Spanish, you would say "voy". "Vengo" means to come. So you may want to say "Voy a bailar salsa". That is better understood and a more correct way of expressing your meaning.

    It's exciting to see people who are not afraid of learning another language. I need to do the same!!!! You inspire me.

    Thank you both for "teaching me".
    One of my friends also noticed that when I speak I mostly use "venir" instead of "ir", but the problem is that most of the people don't correct me, because they think "I understand what she ment..." Then I learn with mistakes and my mistakes become my bad habits!

    Hm, can I also say: Me voy a salsa...? What is the difference if I say: Voy a salsa...?

    I was thinking, (for instance) if I have a friend working in that salsa club and he will be there by the time I arrive, can I use "Vengo a salsa..." (when talking to that person)?

    well if you're saying "i come to dance salsa" i think it would be "vengo para (then whatever the verb is for salsa)". Basically, if you put me in front of "voy a" then you're saying that what you're going to do is being directed at yourself. "Me voy a Mexico" would be "I'm going to Mexico". Honestly, you could say it either way and i don't think it would make much of a difference.

    In some cases, putting a verb in the reflexive form can make it more intense, as you do sometimes in English by adding a particle. For example, ir means "to go," but irse is usually translated "to go away." Similarly, comer means "to eat," but comerse might be translated as "to eat up," as in se comió cinco naranjas, he ate up five oranges.

    Saludos

    I do have a problem with the phrase "Voy a salsa". That does not really make sense. You woudn't really go to salsa... because "salsa" is a noun... the name of a dance. Woudln't you say that you are going to dance the salsa? Wouln't you say that you are going to "salar" Ha, ha! "Salsa" is not a verb in Spanish that I know of. It's something you dip your chips in and it's the NAME of a dance. So you can't say that you are GOING to a tango. You would say that your are going TO tango. You would say "Voy a bailar el tango".

    Now, "disco" is a dance AND a place. So you could say, "I'm going to the disco". "Voy al disco".

    Now, if there is a club name Salsa, then you could say, "Voy a Salsa".

    Jump in.... you linguistic experts!

    Thank you... It sounds funny to say "a la disco" if you don't know that it is short for "discoteca".
    What do you think about "voy a salsa"? Is that ever said like that in Spanish speaking countries that you know of? I've never heard it but... what do I know?
